Course Past Approvals

The Australian Psychological Society (APS) for it's members since the first approvals in 1995 by the then director of training and standards Dr Alison Garton. The APS no longer approves any courses for PD other than it's own training courses ie, run by or on behalf of the APS, since October 2012. These courses were previously approved until October 2012 for 45 Generalist credit hours as well as by the Clinical, Community, Health and Counselling Colleges in various recent years. These prior accreditations by the APS can be used as a guide for psychologists in self assessing CPD allocation in 2014.

The Psychologists Registration Board of NSW approved this course in 1995 for intern or conditionally registered psychologists in NSW for 20 credit hours. From 1996 the Psychology Board delegated credit hours allocation to a training psychologist's individual supervisor rather than the Psychology Board itself. Individual supervisors could then use the previous Board allocation of approved credit hours as a guide. The 20 hours were the maximum allocation allowed for a training course at that time.

OT Australia previously approved the training for 30 points in category 6, but they no longer accredit any training courses for any training organisations in recent years.

The Australian Association of Social Workers (AASW) approved for 48 CPD credit hours in 2013.
