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 and the ideal audience will be described in terms of levels, assumed knowledge, sectors or client base. Structured CPD will typically have a number of CPD hours set for the activity.
The attendee may be already working in a role or aspiring to a role for it to be considered relevant and structured professional development.

For your convenience, The Tax Institute has created a Structured Education Record Form for your use.

Unstructured CPD

Unstructured CPD is defined as an activity which does necessarily define the types of attendees. Unstructured can be as simple as reading your Taxation in Australia® journal, networking, social or tax community-building activity. Please note it is not necessary to record your unstructured CPD.
Should you have any further enquiries regarding other possible structured CPD options and the hours allocated towards your mandatory structured CPD, please contact a Membership Adviser on 02 8223 0060.
