CPD Cycle 5

Duration

1st April 2020 – 31st December 2022

To align with the ending date of both HKSA membership and HKIA registration, CPD Cycle 5 will end on 31 December 2022 and will only last for two years and nine months.

Eligibility

All HKSA Full and Life Members

Requirement

Gain 45 CPD Points within the cycle

There are two changes in the scoring system in this cycle:

  • In light of the pandemic in 2020, which caused cancellation of numerous events worldwide, and a slightly shortened cycle, the maximum number of points allowed for Category 3 (Peer-directed Activities) and Category 4 (Self-study) activities combined is increased from 15 points per cycle to 30 points per cycle.
  • Category 9 (Humanitarian Audiological Services) and 10 (Assistance in HKSA) are now combined into one category “Category 9 – Promotion of Professional Status of Audiologists”. The maximum number of points allowed for the new category is 10 points per cycle.

Fee

HK$2000.00 (one-off payment for the whole cycle)
