Certification Program Pause

We are pausing online applications for Certification from COB Friday 18th November, whilst we undertake an extensive program review.
Our reform is not about re-inventing the wheel, it is about re-invigorating the program and enhancing it’s usability, whilst maintaining standards and improving the assessment process. 
Please refer to our FAQ Page below for more information on the proposed changes. 
This will not impact existing Certification levels, or the processing of applications received prior to 18/11/2022.
If you have any questions that haven't been addressed in the FAQ's, please contact us via certification@aihs.org.au

 

Certification Pause  FAQ

Why are we changing the Certification Program?
Based on feedback of our existing program we are working on improvements to streamline processes and better meet the needs of both applicants and assessors. 
We will still be using a model that requires Qualifications, Knowledge, Experience and Capability Assessment, a fundamental part of our program.

I am an existing Certified member- what does this mean for me?
If you currently hold Certification, nothing changes- there is still a requirement of Continuing Professional Development, we are looking at simplifying the 
CPD recording process, and will communicate this once established.

I have an existing application that is to be reviewed, will I need to re-apply?
All applications received prior to 18/11/2022 will continue to be reviewed, and processed. 

My CPD Logbook is due while certification is paused, do I still need to complete the logbook?
Yes, please follow the instructions in your logbook reminder email and reach out if you have any questions.

 AIHS Certified Practitioners and Professionals are required to complete CPD to maintain their annual certification registration, further information can be found here
