Continuing professional development (CPD) is how occupational therapists maintain, improve and broaden their knowledge, expertise and competence. CPD is an important component in the continued provision of safe and effective services.
All practising occupational therapists must undertake CPD.
Registration standards define the requirements that applicants and registrants need to meet to be registered.
These guidelines assist occupational therapists to meet the Board’s CPD registration standard.
The following additional documents have been developed to supplement the Registration standard: Continuing professional development by providing further information regarding the expectations of the Occupational Therapy Board of Australia. These documents should be read in conjunction with the standard and guidelines.
