GAINING CPD POINTS - IS
TIME, DISTANCE OR EVEN
PARKING AN ISSUE FOR YOU?
GAIN YOUR CPD POINTS ANYTIME, ANYWHERE
WITH OUR SEMINAR RECORDINGS
Not everyone has the time to leave their desks to attend face-toface seminars, especially if the seminars are interstate so here is
the alternative – Live web seminars.
OUR POINT OF DIFFERENTIATION IS THAT OUR CPD CONTENT IS CURRENT,
BECAUSE THEY ARE RECORDINGS FROM OUR RECENT SEMINARS
You can attend our live web seminars from any location and claim
the same number of CPD points as face to face seminars.
If you are not available to attend the live web seminar, we also
have the recording of the seminar available to be viewed online
but you can only claim up to 5 CPD points for recordings.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Can you really afford 10 hours of your time attending online training that is not up to date?
If not, listed below are a sample of seminar recordings available. As with our face to face seminars you
will have access to the full written seminars materials day or night, with the click of a mouse. NSW
practitioners can claim 1 CPD point per hour (up to a maximum of 5 CPD points per year) from the
listening to recorded materials.
Below are just some of the recordings available to you from our recent seminars.
The process is quick and easy. All you require is a secure internet
connection and you are ready to go.
