Training Provider Accreditation

Training Provider Accreditation

With changes in technology and greater emphasis on the protection of public health and the environment, the WIPA Management Committee aims to promote high standards of technical expertise and professional conduct through promoting Continuing Professional Development (CPD) of the WIPA membership.

We encourage training providers, equipment suppliers, and event organisers to submit their CPD programmes for WIPA registration. The event will be considered by the Committee and awarded CPD hours.

Publication of Events on WIPA Website

Events are published on the WIPA website, together with the allocated CPD hours, and a link to the event website. It is the responsibility of the event organiser to register interested parties. See our current events here

Event organisers are encouraged to submit high resolution photographs of their training events to be published on the WIPA website. See some examples here

Requirements for accreditation of CPD events

Accreditation is based on but not limited to:

  • Content
  • Duration
  • Delivery (e.g. online, seminar, workshop, conference etc).
  • Degree of formal assessment
    • Robustly assessed i.e. to NZQA Unit standard, CPD = delivery hours
    • Not assessed, CPD = half of delivery hours
  • Conference attendance, CPD = half of delivery hours

CPD Requirements

WIPA registrants are required to complete a minimum of 30 hours CPD over a two year period.


There is a $200+GST fee per programme submitted for accreditation

This fee covers:

  • Accreditation process
  • Publishing course information on the WIPA website

Accredited events will be reviewed every two years.
