Refuel in the Regions
The Australian Institute of Architects experienced education team offers our Refuel Provider Network assistance with developing educational content that suits an architectural audience and meets formal continuing professional development (CPD) requirements.
Members of the Refuel CPD Network deliver CPD content to the profession.
In Queensland, we support the Refuel Provider Network’s CPD delivery to the Queensland regions by organising a time and place for the Refuel CPD delivery. The Refuel Provider then delivers the CPD either in-person or through webinar. The curation of the Refuel Providers into this Queensland program has been done in collaboration with the regional chairs for our Queensland regions and is tailored to the desires of each regional area, to best cater to the local CPD needs of our members.
