The Division offers a varied Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programme for Speech Language Pathologists and Audiologists. Activities range from special interest groups and workshops, which meet to discuss evidence-based practice and new developments, to formal post-graduate courses which result in additional qualifications.
The Division is an accredited service provider recognised by the Health Professions Council of South Africa. Planning, presentation and review of CPD activities occurs regularly and the Division is always open to suggestions regarding topics and the format of activities (workshops, seminars, master classes etc).
All Speech-language pathologists and Audiologists working in South Africa must carry out CPD activities in order to maintain their registration with the HPCSA. Teachers and other professionals working with individuals with speech, language and communication difficulties may also find courses run by our division that meet their CPD requirements.
For further information please contact Christine Rogers. Information regarding other CPD events which may be of interest to professionals can be obtained from the professional societies' websites including SASHLA & South African Association of Audiologists.
