RACGP CPD Program

We are a CPD education provider under The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) CPD Program.

RACGP accreditation 2020-2022 Triennium

We are currently in the 2020-2022 Triennium which commenced on 1 January 2020. This triennium has undergone enhancements from the previous years. The RACGP has introduced new CPD education standards as a basis for strengthening the educational rigour of CPD. The intent is to ensure a stronger focus on quality, wider-ranging education activies which are better suited to the needs of health professionals in our region. 

The new features of the CPD program are designed to help practitioners identify and source relevant education that will support their professional development across the breadth of general practice. Recording of CPD has been simplified, and the types of CPD education activities have been broadened to recognise what GPs do in their everyday professional practice.

A minimum of 130 CPD Program points are required for the triennium. 

The minimum 130 points must include the following mandatory activities:

Two CPD Accredited Activities (formerly Category 1 activities)

  • 40 CPD points per activity
  • CPD Accredited Activities may be either provider-led or self-directed

One basic life support (BLS) activity

  • 5 CPD points
  • Training must be a minimum of one hour in duration and include demonstration of competence in chest compressions and use of an automated external defibrillator

The remaining points required may be accrued through your chosen learning. (This information is taken from 2020-2022 Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Program: Handbook for general practitioners).
