External CPD Courses and PACFA Community CPD

PACFA is proud to run community events and short courses, and hosts a major conference every two years. PACFA’s Branches and Colleges also develop and host a variety of high-quality, professional development and networking events, both online and in person. Most online events are recorded, and made available to our members after the event has passed.  

For a list of upcoming PACFA community events, including webinars, short courses, and in-person events, please visit the CPD & Events Search page.

Unless stated otherwise, PACFA events count towards annual CPD registration requirements, and will automatically be added to CPD logs. 

PACFA also endorses external CPD courses directly related to clinical practice in counselling, psychotherapy, mental health, and Indigenous Healing Practices. All providers must apply for PACFA endorsement against the CPD Endorsement Guidelines (2023).  

Unless stated otherwise, endorsed courses count towards annual CPD registration requirements; please keep a copy of your participation certificate or proof of payment, as external courses will need to be added to PACFA logs manually.

For a list of upcoming PACFA endorsed courses, please visit the CPD & Events Search page.
