Record keeping

To help you keep track of your CPD activities, NSW Fair Trading has developed a CPD diary.

You must keep records for each CPD activity, showing:

  • the nature of the activity
  • its educational value
  • the number of CPD points earned.

The following records are acceptable and must be kept for at least three years:

  • for one point per hour learning:
    • proof of attendance
    • receipts or other records verifying the claim for points
  • for three point per hour learning (by a registered training organisation (RTO) or an Australian university):
    • Statement of attainment
    • Certificate of part completion or qualification issued by a RTO or Australian university.
  • for three point per hour learning (by an approved industry association or a Government agency):
    • proof of attendance
    • receipts or other records verifying the claim for points

Proof of attendance

The proof of attendance should contain:

  1. Your name, contact details and licence or certificate number
  2. Title of the course/event/activity/training and the CPD topic area covered
  3. Course code (if any)
  4. Date, time and place of the course/event/activity/training
  5. Duration of the course/event/activity/training
  6. Type of assessment (if applicable)
  7. Name of the trainer and organisation

You are not required to send any of these records to Fair Trading but f you are audited you must be able to prove that you complied with CPD requirements.
