Continuing Education Credits (CECs) no longer apply to professional practice beyond March 31st 2016.
As part of our enhancement of the Professional Registration System, feedback from across the industry indicated a need for greater depth of assessed knowledge and learning among registered professionals to ensure quality and credibility. As a result, continuing education credits now apply only to participation in education. This might include approved courses listed at the CEC directory or a range of other eligible education methods.
Currency of practice is still an important principle of exercise professional registration. As a AUSactive registered professional, you will be required to keep your Professional Practice Status up-to-date, so that it is clear which of your registration categories you are practicing in at any given time.
You’ll never need to re-sit your qualification to renew your registration. If your registration has lapsed, then you need to ensure you have obtained 20 CECs within the most recent 2 year period and that your First Aid and CPR is up-to-date.
