EARN AFFORDABLE CPD POINTS

Did you know that it costs a teacher between R150 and R300 to earn one CPD point through traditional training sessions?  AOSIS has an alternative, cost effective way to earn those points through its CPD platform, in the comfort of your own home or office.

Debbie Badenhorst, an occupational therapist based in George, was excited to try out the CPD platform from AOSIS.  She said: “Since discovering AOSIS, I’ve been collecting regular clinical and ethics points.  It is a very user-friendly website, easy to understand and the process works flawlessly.”

She was so impressed with the platform that the WCED purchased  memberships for almost all the therapists in the Western Cape.  Debbie says: “Due to the COVID-restrictions this year, it was almost impossible to accumulate enough points.  This platform has made it possible for all of us to obtain points on a regular basis, at a fraction of the price of on-site workshops.”

A useful feature of the platform is that you are not restricted to articles only listed under your own profession.  Debbie has obtained many points from the list of articles under physiotherapy, speech therapy, as well as psychology, all relevant to her profession.  She adds: “I will continue my professional development through AOSIS and will also continue advertising their website to other therapists.”
