The Australian Psychological Society’s (APS) online continuing professional development (CPD) logging system has been developed as a tool to assist members in complying with APS CPD requirements, and where applicable also the requirements of the Psychology Board of Australia (PBA) and of Medicare Australia.

The CPD logging system is a record keeping tool that also provides feedback to members by displaying an individualised ‘CPD summary’ that advises members what CPD requirements they have met and what requirements they have not met. The content of the CPD summary and related reports are generated based on:

  • individual profile information entered by you as a member
  • interpretation of PBA CPD requirements at the time the system was developed
  • interpretation of Medicare Australia CPD requirements at the time the system was developed.

The APS has no control over the information entered by you, nor can the Society officially state on behalf of the PBA or Medicare Australia whether a registered psychologist or a psychologist providing services under Medicare has met the respective CPD requirements of those organisations. Therefore, whilst every effort has been made to ensure the integrity of the CPD logging system, the APS cannot guarantee the accuracy of the feedback provided by the system and makes no undertaking or warranty in regard to your use of the CPD logging system.

The ultimate responsibility for complying with CPD requirements rests with the individual member.
