Continuing Education

CPD in SA

The Institute has become aware that companies are approaching architects with range of CPD offerings that they claim will earn the architect formal points.  We note that no organisation, including the APBSA and the Institute, endorses CPD presentations or can guarantee that attendees will be awarded formal points.  Formal CPD points will be assessed by the Board based on the records kept by the architect and whether those records demonstrate that the architect gained knowledge relating to the stated NSCA competencies. The following note provides information regarding the introduction of CPD in SA.  Information is also available from the APBSA.  In the interim, be wary of organisations offering ‘too good to be true’ CPD, including points that can be stockpiled for use in future registration years. 

 

MENTORING

The Institute recently launched its new national mentoring program, via online mentoring platform Mentorloop

Mentorloop makes mentoring easy. With quick online registration and a combination of self and recommended matching, mentors can select the mode, frequency and location of their mentoring partnership.
