Assessment process for approval

We have developed a process for approving CPD activities that supports the improvement of quality professional development for all licenced holders.

To assist you in understanding the assessment process for approval, we have listed the stages:

  1. CBOS receives a completed application via email – CBOSinfo@justice.tas.gov.au
    1. Application for CPD is to include:
      1. Training Provider contact details
      2. Course details – title, location, type of course, category of licence holder, date/s of delivery, duration of the event/training, delivery medium, facilitator and experience details, learning activities and associated/supporting documentation eg unit/course/event outline
      3. Suggested CPD points
    2. Once application is checked for full details, is progressed for assessment
  2. Assessment of Application –
    1. The appropriate technical area will make an assessment based on the subject and the requirements. (go to ‘meeting the criteria – how we assess the CPD activity’)
    2. Where further information is required, we will contact the training provider for further information.
    3. The review process may take up to two (2) weeks from the date the documentation is received.

NOTE: The earlier the notification is received for review, the more time there is to advertise your event, with the potential for greater attendance.

  1. Approval/Refusal of Application
    1. The Administrator will either approve or refuse the application for CPD
      1. If the course is approved the points will be allocated to the course.
      2. If refused, the training provider will be advised of the reasons behind the decision
      3. CBOS reserves the right to use its discretion in approving or rejecting a course for the purposes of ensuring quality CPD
  2. Notification of Application Outcome
    1. An email will be sent out advising the Applicant of the outcome
    2. Where the approved training is a public event or requested, CBOS will ensure that all details will be placed on to the CBOS website under CPD training calendar/list.

On approval a course is valid for two years, on the proviso there are no changes to the structure and learning outcomes.

CBOS monitors courses on a regular basis.

Where a course does not continue to meet the requirements, CBOS will notify the Provider.
