Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
Completion of, and development work within Orygen’s mentoring and training packages may contribute to your annual Continuing Professional Development requirements for your career development association (for example, CDAA) membership.
By your own determination, you will need to identify which of the seven career development competencies are addressed by the work and time associated with the package, and log that claim in your member record with your respective association – subject of course to any limitations applied by that association.
