AANZPA Practitioners stay current through self-reflection, learning with other practitioners and engaging in regular, relevant supervision of their work. The currency process is designed to promote professional development and accountability.
When you renew your AANZPA membership by paying your annual fee invoice, you are also be declaring that you have met AANZPA’s currency requirements and that you are in good standing. Once you have paid your annual fee, you are issued with your Annual Practice Certificate. If you have not paid your fee by the due date of 31 July, you are considered not current.
Members who are scaling down their practice can discuss proportional and appropriate currency requirements with the Membership Secretary firstname.lastname@example.org.
Practicing members are required to undertake a minimum of 25 hours of relevant professional development in each membership year (1st July to 30th June). These 25 hours will include at least 10 hours of professional supervision to enhance learning, promote role development and discuss ethical issues. The additional 15 hours can be fulfilled in a number of ways, such as, regional currency meetings, workshops and conferences, planning and presenting a new workshop, collegial discussions, writing or reading professional papers and books.
A minimum of 10 of the total 25 hours professional development is to be undertaken with other AANZPA practicing Ordinary or Distinguished members. While it is preferable this takes place face to face, where necessary this may be online, by phone, or via written correspondence.
