Each profession and regulatory body has its own requirement. These requirements are in a state of flux. As a result of the changing nature of professional development requirements it’s best to visit your association’s website.

Each course is created by instructor(s). The main part of each course is a set of videos that you can watch on-demand. Courses can also include quizzes, articles and supporting resources like PDF, Excel and other documents.

The course starts as soon as you sign up - you will have full access to all course content and materials immediately and have up to 365 days to complete it.
