CPD distance learning - settlement agents

Remote (regional WA) participants

Remote participants can now complete all of their CPD requirements online by contacting a training provider, see CPD activities - settlement agents.

A remote participant is any participant whose principal place of business falls outside a 100 km radius of Perth or Busselton.

Funding for travel expenses to attend CPD courses

Financial assistance may be available to those settlement agents who have to travel at least 100 km (in one direction) to attend a CPD seminar or workshop in either Perth or Busselton.

To obtain the subsidy, a statutory declaration detailing the distance travelled from where the agent is located to the venue of the seminar or workshop must be provided to the Commissioner after the agent has attended the seminar or workshop. Online route finders are handy tools in calculating the distance in one direction.

The amount of subsidy paid will be calculated according to the following table.

CPD travel subsidy
Distance (in one direction)  Subsidy
100 km - 300 km  Maximum of $200.00
301 km - 1000 km  Maximum of $400.00
More than 1000 km  Maximum of $800.00


Please note the amount of financial assistance paid will be calculated on the distance the agent is located from the venue, not the overall distance travelled. For example, an agent travelling from Mandurah to Perth to attend a seminar, where the overall distance travelled exceeds 100 kilometres, will not be entitled to claim the subsidy. An agent, who travels from a location further than 100 kilometres away, such as Albany or Kalgoorlie, will be.

Interstate licences

You still need to obtain your CPD points in Western Australia if your licence was granted under the Mutual Recognition Act (Western Australia) Act 2001.  Should you experience particular hardship or difficulty in completing the required CPD points by reason of your geographical location, you may apply to Consumer Protection in writing for a partial or full exemption.
