A request for a deferralexemption or a partial submission will be considered through an application process for ‘Extenuating Circumstances’.  Each application will be considered on its own merits. Early application is recommended in order to expedite this process.

For further guidance and explanation, refer to section 6 of the CPD Framework Composite Document April 2014.

Please note: It is very important that you read over this document prior to applying for extenuating circumstances.

  • If you return to work between 2 December and up to 31 May, you are eligible to apply for a partial CPD submission of 15 hours using the EC form.
  • If you are on maternity leave over the submission deadline, you are eligible to apply for a CPD exemption.
