CONTINUING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
The South African Council for the Project and Construction Management Professions (SACPCMP) introduced a system of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for all the Registered Professionals on the 1st of April 2012.
The SACPCMP is also empowered by Section 13(k) of Act No. 48 of 2000 to determine after consultation with the Voluntary Associations and Registered Professionals conditions relating to the nature and extent of CPD.
What is CPD: The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) (1993) defines CPD as the systematic maintenance, improvement and broadening of knowledge and skills, and the on-going development of personal qualities necessary for the execution of professional and technical duties throughout a practitioner’s working life.
Council resolved that CPD is one of the conditions for maintenance and renewal of registration. It is therefore compulsory for all registered professionals to undergo CPD. All registered professionals need to renew their registration every five (5) years to maintain their registration in a manner prescribed by the Council.
Due to a busy and packed schedule for the Professionals, the SACPCMP has recognized the need to develop the Online video bundles that can be accessed anywhere and anytime.
These CPD video bundles are Validated by Council and they cater for category A both Core Knowledge and Non-Core Knowledge.

Update CPD Profile
In terms of Section 13(k) of the SACPCMP Act No. 48 of 2000, the Council is empowered to determine the conditions relating to the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) of registered persons relating to Project and Construction Management and Construction Health and Safety to protect the public interest.
The rationale for CPD is to develop, enhance and maintain professional competency of registered professionals to ensure that the technical knowledge base is improved in an orderly and on a continuous basis.
All Registered Professionals need to renew their registration every five (5) years to maintain their registration in a manner prescribed by the Council. Given the CPD activities that need to be undertaken, the SACPCMP requires that all Registered Persons update their CPD profiles online.
