Practice, Associate and Student Members are encouraged to participate in the Building Designers Association of Australia’s CPD Program, but it is not compulsory for these levels of Membership.
For further information on point allocations please refer to the ‘CPD record of participation statement‘.
If a participant is unable to achieve the required CPD points within the year, a written submission noting the circumstances is to be sent to the BDAA Management Committee by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org, to be considered on its merits and individual circumstances. The BDAA CPD Management Committee, acting on behalf of Building Designers Association of Australia’s National Council, will consider all submissions made by members and rulings will be made on a fair and even basis.
All participants will be issued with details for the BDAA CPD App including instructions regarding its installation, usage and reporting. This is for use on smart phones or tablets to enable the participants to record their attendances at BDAA’s sanctioned meetings, seminars and conferences etc.
Those participants who do not use the BDAA CPD App for logging and reporting their CPD activity, will be required to enter all information into the CPD Record of Participation Statement. This can be accessed via our website at www.bdaa.com.au/accreditation & cpd. A CPD Record of Participation Statement is only to be submitted if participant is not submitting CPD return by the Building Designers Association of Australia’s CPD App.
The CPD Reporting Period is from 1 July – 30 June annually. Either the CPD Record of Participation Statement or CPD App lodgement must be submitted by email to: email@example.com no later than 1 July annually. With this new system, no points will be allowed to be carried over to the next reporting period.
Annual CPD Statements may be subject to an audit at any time. As such participants should retain their evidence to support points claimed for a period of 5 years. In all instances, contact will be via email. It is not the CPD Management Committee’s responsibility if you fail to respond to these emails.
