    Hi cynthia, I had the same problem on CPDs but I found ifolio.com.au where i can properly document my self directed CPDs. Can I ask, have you already lodged your application to AHPRA? And is it with or without CPDs?

    i answered you earlier without the quote.
    just want to ask you took all the quiz in the ifolio?
    would CPD means having to attend seminars?
    is it ok if there is no mark/ score?
    thanks a lot?

    Hi cynthia. All answers are here below. This is AHPRA's reply when I asked about CPDs for overseas applicants.

    "Thank you for your recent enquiry to AHPRA.

    Yes, this will be applicable to you if you are currently holding registration within your Country. Therefore you must show that you have competed 20 hours within the last 12 months. This may include competition of a course or courses, the CPD must be relevant to the nurse or midwife’s context of practice, documentation of self-directed CPD must include dates, a brief description of the outcomes, and the
    number of hours spent in each activity. All evidence should be verified. It must demonstrate that the nurse or midwife has:

    a) identified and prioritised their learning needs, based on an evaluation of their practice against the relevant competency or professional practice standards
    b) developed a learning plan based on identified learning needs
    c) participated in effective learning activities relevant to their learning needs
    d) reflected on the value of the learning activities or the effect that participation will have on their practice."

    And when I asked if I can use my CPDs at iFolio:

    "Thank you for your enquiry.

    Regarding your CPD documentation, as you are required to keep record of these documents you may provide them in any way you deem appropriate."

    CPD's can be in the form of seminars especially those we call here "CEUs" held by private hospitals every month, which I don't have plenty of so I have no CPDs to submit but the self directed learning units documented in iFolio.

    How did AHPRA ask for your CPDs? And may I know what are the other requirements that you lack?

    I suggest BP in Bendigo, at La Trobe University. It's a big public school and has an early exit if you've done well after 2 months.

    Why is AHPRA asking for your CPDs? Is it true that you wouldn't have to if you're currently employed? Thanks!

    No it's not true. Review the AHPRA form so you will know that it's really required. And it's already confirmed by AHPRA through my online enquiries.
