SPASA Victoria has just been formally accredited as an official CPD Provider by the Building Commission of Victoria.
This is a positive outcome for the Association and its members, as the national construction industry moves towards federally controlled training and registration systems.
It is highly likely that CPD will become a mandatory criteria for annual pool and spa builder registration renewals. Going forward this Commission recognition will allow all SPASA Victoria promotions and certificates to carry the official program branding:
What is Continuing professional Development ?
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a commitment to ongoing learning to improve the knowledge for all in the building industry.
CPD is a program designed to help people working in the building industry achieve their full potential by undertaking learning and development activities. This can include a range of activities, such as structured on-the-job training, industry-based education, committee representation, short course and university education.
All SPASA Victoria courses will now be recognised as appropriate professional development for registered practitioners within the pool and spa industry. All SPASA Victoria Training certificates will now carry both the SPASA Victoria branding and that of the Building Commission of Victoria.
This is a significant milestone for the Association and one that will help position the industry peak body as we move toward a more regulated, and educated, professional industry.
