One of the priorities for the Australian Institute of Building is to support its members and the wider Australian Building and Construction profession with both relevant and innovative continuing professional development (CPD).

Through our Chapters, we take pride in working towards a more integrated and nationally coordinated program of both online and face to face course delivery.

Members are now strongly encouraged to maintain a level of involvement in continuing professional development.  A minimum of 70 points over three years has been set as a guide with a minimum of 20 points each year which is a combination of both online and other methods of delivery (eg: face to face).

For more information on CPD requirements please contact the AIB National Office on (02) 6253 1100.
