Tasmanian CPD events

Continuing professional development (CPD) events are a core component of the Tasmanian Chapter's continuing professional development program. The series aims to present topics that are inspiring and tangible, providing knowledge that attendees can put into practice.

CPD events in 2017-18 are supported by the Tasmanian Government and the Board of Architects of Tasmania. All Tasmanian-hosted CPD events are presented at the flat rate of $15 for everyone.

Tasmanian CPD events that display a Refuel CPD badge, shown here, are eligible for CPD points.
