CPD Policy, requirements, and tracking.



You can find the Continuing Professional Development Policy by clicking here.

Through unification we have introduced a new standard for continuing professional development (CPD), please see section 1100 of the By-laws, which can be found here.

Effective January 2015, the CPD standard requires a:
  • Minimum of 20 hours reported annually, 10 of which must be verifiable
  • Minimum of 120 hours reported on a rolling 3 calendar-year basis, 60 of which must be verifiable.

Members are required to record their hours by January 31 each year using mycpawebservices.ca.  In 2015 and 2016 CPA Newfoundland and Labrador will be verifying that the minimum annual hours in the appropriate categories have been reported.  For each of these years, members will be subject to audit on a sample basis   Beginning in 2017, and continuing annually, we will verify that members have met both the annual requirement as well as the rolling 3 calendar-year requirement. Audits will be conducted on a sample basis for both the annual and 3 year reporting period.
