Structured CPD

Structured CPD is delivered face-to-face or through a variety of technology-based formats.

Structured CPD has a defined outline, purpose or objective, aim or learning outcome.

The ideal audience will be described in terms of levels, assumed knowledge, sectors or client base.

Structured CPD will typically have CPD hours set for the activity.

Unstructured CPD

Unstructured CPD is an activity which does necessarily define the types of attendees.

Unstructured CPD can be as simple as reading your Taxation in Australia® journal, networking or on the job training. Please note, it is not necessary to record your unstructured CPD.
