The Australian Sonographer Accreditation Registry (ASAR) has continued to closely monitor the impacts of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic on the field of Sonography and the broader health sector. ASAR understands that many practitioners have engaged in additional professional development activities during this time, creating a unique learning opportunity. As a result, ASAR has taken the following position with regards to Continuing Professional Development (CPD):
- Sonographers whose CPD triennium concludes 31st December 2020 will be recognised as having met their CPD obligations
- Sonographers in their first or second year of Triennium will be given further consideration at the time of their triennium’s conclusion 31/12/2021 and 31/12/2022
- Sonographers on the annual ASAR CPD Default program will still be required to meet their point requirement
- All Sonographers are encouraged to continue to engage with CPD that is relevant to their scope of practice
Thank you for your patience whilst ASAR continues to work through this period of change.
