Each CPD year, a practitioner must, unless exempted in whole or in part, complete at least 10 CPD units.
The CPD rules state that solicitors who are required to undertake CPD, must complete as part of their CPD obligations at least one (1) CPD unit in each of the core area below every year:
- Ethics and Professional Responsibility
- Practice Management and Business Skills
- Professional Skills
- Substantive law
VIC practitioners, may claim 1 CPD unit per hour of private study, including on-demand audio recordings, to a maximum of 5 units in any CPD year
Attending a live web seminar entitles a practitioner to claim the same number of points as attending the seminar in person.
