Do I have to participate in the CPD program if my licence is granted under the Mutual Recognition (Western Australia) Act 2001?

Yes. You still need to obtain your CPD points in Western Australia if your licence was granted under that Act. You may find the questions listed under PARTICIPANTS WHO LIVE IN REMOTE AREAS section useful. For further information about mutual recognition, view the licensing and registration page. 

Can I claim CPD points for undertaking CPD activities in my own state or territory?

Yes. Activities conducted in another state or territory under their respective CPD programs can be undertaken as elective components. If these activities have not been approved and are not listed on the Consumer Protection website, you can write to Consumer Protection after you have completed the activity to request to have elective points awarded to it. These requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis and evidence of completion must be presented along with details of the activity.
