Temporary changes to Continuing Professional Development for builders and swimming pool builders

July 26, 2020

Travel restrictions and event cancellations during the COVID-19 pandemic have made it difficult for builders to keep their professional knowledge up to date. For this reason, NSW Fair Trading has temporarily reduced the minimum number of continuing professional development (CPD) points required over a 12-month period.

Builders and swimming pool builders looking to renew their licence between 1 May and 31 December 2020 will only have to have completed nine, instead of 12, CPD points in the preceding 12 months.

To see the revised CPD guidelines for builders and swimming pool builders, visit the NSW Fair Trading website. You can also visit NSW Government’s Coronavirus (COVID-19) advice hub for information and advice on COVID-19 for individuals, communities and businesses in NSW, including making your workplace COVID Safe.
