The Continuing Professional Development (CPD) declaration portal is now open for you to make your 2018 CPD declaration. The deadline to report is March 1, 2019.
Your CPD report is – along with payment of your membership fees – part of the annual process to apply for continuation of membership. Legislation dictates that you must meet these two obligations in order to have your membership continued each year.
The reporting period for CPD is the calendar year. Your declaration is due each year on March 1st for the prior calendar year. All members are required to make their CPD Declaration annually, regardless of any previously declared exemptions relating to Continuing Professional Development or membership fees.
Your declaration must be made for both your annual and your three-year rolling requirements. Additional information and more details can be found on the CPA Alberta website.
As a reminder, the CPD requirements are:
- Each member must complete a minimum of 20 hours of CPD learning activities annually of which 10 hours must be verifiable; and
- Each member must complete 120 hours over a three-year rolling cycle (current year and prior two years), of which 60 hours must be verifiable.
There are exemptions to the requirements for some Alberta CPAs.
If you have any questions regarding the CPD requirements or your declaration, CPA Alberta is here to help. To contact CPA Alberta, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call toll free at 1-800-232-9406.
