Professional development is an investment in your career and also ensures better outcomes for the people with whom you work. It is a requirement for all professionals.
Community workers are placed in a unique relationship to other people and have a responsibility, as well as an ethical obligation, to remain professionally current.
ACWA members must undertake 20 hours per year of targeted continuing professional development (CPD). CPD can be broader than formal training and we encourage members to think creatively about professional development.
