CPD in Tasmania

In Tasmania, the Building Act 2000 requires accredited building practitioners to undertake CPD.

Accredited architects may undertake either the Accredited Building Practitioners' generic CPD scheme or the CPD program outlined in the joint AACA/Australian Institute of Architects Joint CPD Policy.

The Accredited Building Practitioners generic CPD program is available online.

For those seeking to undertake the Institute CPD program please read the AACA/Australian Institute of Architects Joint CPD Policy.
