Continuing professional development toolkit

January 2018

This Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Toolkit notifies the CPD requirements for licensed immigration advisers according to Competency Standard 7 of the Immigration Advisers Competency Standards 2016 and provides guidance.

These CPD requirements came into force on 26 November 2015.


These CPD requirements have drawn on the CPD model adopted by the New Zealand Law Society. Some parts of this Toolkit have been adapted from material prepared by the New Zealand Law Society with their kind permission.

Purpose of CPD

The objective of these CPD requirements is to support advisers to engage in activities that contribute to their ongoing development as immigration advice professionals.
