APSCA Member Auditors at the RA/CSCA level are required to complete a minimum of 48 hours of CPD per calendar year, including mandatory training as outlined by APSCA. The details are outlined in the CPD policy.
To support Member Auditors in completing their CPD, APSCA has been working to add courses to our data system. These fall into two categories:
There are over 30 pre-recognized courses, including 14 external and 19 internal courses.
Coming Soon – Ability to upload courses that Member Auditors have participated in, directly to their profile within the APSCA data system.
APSCA strives to support our Member Auditors and enhance auditor competencies through APSCA’S Continuous Professional Development (CPD) policy. We welcome Member Firms, partners, and affiliates to participate in this initiative by submitting an expression of interest to have their social compliance auditing-related training courses recognized as part of APSCA’s CPD program. Recognized courses will be given a number of CPD hours which Member Auditors can note on their APSCA profile as meeting the annual requirement. Recognized courses can range from online courses to webinars, conferences, and workshops, etc.
The following providers are APSCA recognized for CPD related courses/trainings and have been allocated CPD hours:
Should there be other course available not already listed or captured below, please contact APSCA at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We welcome other courses/trainings for consideration.
