CPD policy for education and events

What CPD hours are awarded for AIST Education and Events?

a) Accredited courses, e.g. Diploma of Superannuation;
b) Professional development workshops, e.g. RG146 Refresher; and
c) Events such as conferences and symposiums.

CPD hours are allocated on the premise that one hour of training equals one hour of CPD. However this does not include time spent on breaks and networking functions.
