CPE Guidelines and Activity List

Jump to CPE Activity List

Continuing Professional Education (CPE) is required to maintain your membership and is required to be completed upon renewing your membership. If your CPE form is not complete, you will be unable to renew your membership. Essential practitioner requirements, such as CPE, was introduced to ensure that once practitioners completed their training, that they maintained their competency. The AKA essential practitioner requirements are imposed as a measure to safeguard the public, the practitioner and the kinesiology profession.

Requirements

  • To fulfil AKA practitioner member requirements, 20 credit points must be accumulated each membership year.
  • If you complete 40 or more points in one year, only a maximum of 20 CPE points may be carried forward. This will be counted as 2 years worth of CPE.
  • 20 CPE points for the previous membership year are due on the 1st day of the new membership year. For example, if CPE is due 30th June 2022, then you are required to submit CPE carried out between 1st July 2021 and 30th June 2022.

Important Notes

Do not send supporting documents/evidence

This is not currently required at membership renewal time, however you are responsible for the safe keeping of all supporting documentation and evidence and it must be readily available to the AKA upon request.

Random audits

The AKA can and does reserve the right to perform random CPE audits of practitioner members to validate that CPE records submitted are true and correct. Penalties apply for non-compliance. Any document listed on the CPE activity list can be requested.

Who can sign to confirm your CPE

  • AKA AGM’s attendance can be verified from the AGM minutes.
  • Workshops: Certificates must include relevant information and be dated and signed by a qualified instructor.
  • AKA National Activities may be signed by Management Committee or hosting AKA representative.
  • Attendance Certificates must include the title of activity along with the date and signed by appropriate person/s.

Having difficulty completing your form?

If you are stuck or unsure about your CPE contact the AKA office for support.

Condition of membership

Ongoing CPE is a condition of membership for practitioners. It is your responsibility to ensure that you keep up to date with your CPE requirements.
