CPD statement FAQs

ASFA is committed to developing future leaders in the industry and, as such, we see the provision of opportunities for personal development as a key member service.

Below is a list of frequently asked questions.

Answer

All ASFA events, discussion groups, committee/working groups and learning and development activities in which members have had their names recorded are noted on CPD statements. This includes points for participation in eligible committees.

Answer

It is expected that most members will have undertaken professional reading and CPD activities with other organisations. You can upload external activity via 'My Reports' under the ASFA toolbox and it will display on this report.

Answer

Many ASFA activities allow bookings for groups rather than individuals. This can be for events such as luncheons or non-assessed training activities conducted in a corporate setting. ASFA can only record CPD points against individuals who choose to be registered for the activity. To gain CPD points, bookings need to include the member details. For corporate workshops, the attendance register must be completed in order to have the points reflected in the statement.

If you have any queries on your report, please contact Member Services.

Answer

Associates: 30 points Fellows: 30 points
The minimum number of points for both is 30, of which at least 15 must be from ASFA activities.

Answer

The statements generally only provide evidence of points relating to activities that have been booked individually through ASFA. Action on insufficient points will not be taken on the basis of the CPD statement. Rather, an audit of associates and fellows is made at the end of each financial year at which point you will need to provide additional evidence of CPD.

Membership of ASFA, either as an individual member, or as an employee of a member, is mandatory to retain the right to use AASFA or FASFA postnominals.

Answer

Members with the ASFA AIF should maintain at least the level of points for an AASFA or FASFA. ASFA recommends that CPD should be relevant to the AIF practices.
