Do your courses award CEUs, CHs, CERPs or CPDs?
Health e-Learning maintains accreditation with various bodies. Please see our Course Accreditation List for a graphical table of all the accreditation details for all our courses.
Almost all our courses provide CERPs. Please see each course description (under the Courses menu) to see the type and amount of CERPs offered.
CERPs are a continuing education credit for IBCLCs (International Board Certified Lactation Consultants).
CPDs (Australian Midwives and Nurses)
New regulations require Australian Midwives and Nurses to collect 20 hours of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) each year.
You do not need to specify what CPD you did when filling our your annual registration information (you just need to acknowledge that you have done 20 hours), however if you are randomly selected for auditing, you will need to provide your evidence. This evidence should include
- a brief description of the outcomes
- the number of hours spent in each activity
The certificate you receive upon successful completion states the date and number of hours. Aims and Outcomes are listed in the course description on our website.
Please see the board's FAQ for more information.
