Everything you ever wanted to know about CPD Online

Thu Sep 15 2016

Members are reminded that they can access CPD seminars online by logging on through the Bar Association's website. Seminars viewed online attract 1 CPD point per hour and may be counted in the relevant strand. There is no limit to how many points you can obtain through CPD Online. Where permission has been granted to include a seminar in the online catalogue, the seminar will generally be available through the online streaming system within 2 weeks of delivery.

Which strand does a seminar fall into?

Strand details, along with other keywords are indicated in the tags for each seminar. These tags are searchable and may be used to find related seminars.

Papers from the seminars?

Where papers have been provided for the seminar, these can be found as downloadable attachments on the left hand side of the page once you click on a seminar.

Keeping CPD Records?

Barristers are required to maintain a record of engagement in CPD activities for the CPD year containing the details outlined in this form, in paper form or electronically, and must retain that record for at least three years after the CPD year.

Logging in

You can access CPD online by going onto the Bar Association Website, www.nswbar.asn.au. From there, click on 'For Members' on the left hand side of the screen, then click on 'CPD' under the quick links menu on the right hand side, then click on login required under the heading 'CPD online'.

If you have misplaced your login and password details you are able to reset your details by clicking on 'member sign in' which appears in the top right hand corner of the screen on our homepage. You then click on 'unknown password or username', this will then prompt you to add your surname and date of birth. This will trigger an email to be sent to you with your new details. The email will be sent to the registered email address on our records.
