CPD Requirements

Becoming a CPP is an ongoing process of continued learning and experience. Retention of the CPP status requires completion of a minimum level of recognized Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activity across each three (3) year period following the initial granting of your CPP qualification. This is to maintain the currency of your CPP qualification through taking up learning and development opportunities and activities to maintain an active involvement in your profession and its networks.

The requirement is that you achieve at least 120 points from the available 'menu' of CPD activities over three years. The actual hours that you put into securing these points will depend on the particular mix of activities that you choose.

Meeting your CPD obligations is an important part of the CPP certification process. CPD is an ongoing commitment to this professional qualification and should be completed across each three (3) year period following the initial granting of your CPP status.

Compliance with CPD requirements ensures that those who have met the initial criteria to be awarded their CPP are also deserving of maintaining their status, and able to continue using the CPP post-nominals, ie, using ‘CPP’ on your business cards and letterhead.

Failure to comply with the CPD requirements will result in the termination of your CPP certification. Breaks in the CPD component can be arranged if required because of personal circumstances for a period not exceeding 5 years. Please contact CILTA directly should you require special consideration.

The cost of renewal each three year period is AU$110.00 including GST.

The minimum 120 points:
  1. Must relate to a cross section of activities from the 6 Capability Areas as set out in the table below;
  2. Are calculated by multiplying the number of hours by the number of points assigned to each eligibility area (see maintenance calculator for individual points).
  3. Activities that accrue points under the CPD scheme are divided into categories. Programs or activities completed as whole units that attract points or programs or units that attract points on a per hourly basis. The number of points gained for completed events/activities for all Group categories will sum to your total CPD points.
  4. In order to maintain certification, a minimum score of 120 points is required from your mix of CPD Group activities over the three year period.
  5. Participation in each CPD activity must specify a direct relationship to the specific professional capability to which the CPD relates. This requirement ensures CPD activities are closely linked to the profession.
Examples

John Smith attends a Short Course on Passenger Transport Planning at the University of Melbourne for 5 weeks involving 2 hours per week attendance at lectures. The total of 10 hours of attendance is multiplied by 3 points (Group B, 2A) to equal 30 CPD Points.

Mary Jones visits a major bus maintenance facility for a 2 hour site visit. The total of 2 hours attendance is multiplied by 2 points (Group C, 3i) to equal 4 CPD Points.

Joe Bloggs writes and publishes an article on Community Transport. This is published in a industry magazine. 6 CPD points (Group D, 4d) are awarded for this publication.

Sue Brown belongs to the CILTA Passenger Transport Group and attends 4 committee meetings each year that are 1 hour in length. The total hours over the 3 year CPD period adds to 12 hours which is multiplied by 2 points (Group C, 3e) to equal 24 CPD Points.
