All HPCSA registered practitioners are required to accumulate 30 Continually Professional Development (CPD) Points over a 12 month period and five of the points must be on ethics. Each Points is valid for a 12 month period from the date on which the activation took place (or ended, in the event of post-graduate studies) after which it will lapse. Practitioners, therefore should aim to accumulate a balance of 60 CPD points by the end of each year of practice as per HPCS guidelines.
