RMAs: Doing all 10 CPD as Distance Learning/Private Study no longer possible for re-registration purposes

Many agents are still trying to complete all their annual 10 CPD points via distance learning (private study) then submitting their re-registration application to the Office of the MARA.

The Office of the MARA are asking RMAs who have done this to go back and do 5 extra CPD from Category A activities.  The law changed on 1 January 2018 and transitional exemptions no longer exist.

Distance Learning (Private Study) is a Category B activity and RMAs must only do a maximum of 5 Category B Activities per registration year towards their 10 points for re-registration. 

At least 5 CPD activities should be from Category A every registration year. Examples of Category A activities would be webinar workshops and face-to-face workshops.   

LTA has made a handy summary on The Office of the MARA's CPD requirements for Registered Migration Agents.
