Queensland CPD

Welcome to the Queensland Chapter. In this Chapter, we have 7 Regions: Brisbane City, Gold Coast, Darling Downs, Sunshine Coast, Central Queensland, North Queensland and Far North Queensland.

This page lists upcoming Queensland Continuous Professional Development (CPD) events in all regions. You will also find other opportunities organised by the Institute and affiliated organisations.

In Queensland, it is compulsory for a registered architect to work towards their CPD requirements. This is assigned by the Board of Architects Queensland. A+ members of the Institute are required to accrue yearly CPD Points regardless of their state of registration.

The Australian Accreditation Council of Australia (AACA) catergorise these CPD points in four competencies: Design, Documentation, Project Delivery and Practice Management. These can be formal or informal points.

When you see this image displayed on the event, you are eligible for CPD points in one of the 4 competencies.

Mentor Program Overview 

FAQs 

Information for Students:

The Student Mentoring Program is designed to offer students an insight into working in an architectural practice, provide an understanding of the current workforce expectations and to help bridge the gap between what is covered in the university syllabus and real life practice. You will be placed into a small  group (no more than 4) with other students and connected with a practicing architect whom will be your mentor for the duration of the program.

Register your interest by contacting the QLD Chapter representative Madelynn and take advantage of this unique and rewarding opportunity!

Eligibility requirements for students

  • Must be a current SONA member with the Australian Institute of Architects
  • In 2018 must be enrolled in your 3rd year (or equivalent) in a recognised architectural course at one of the following QLD universities: UQ, BOND, QUT, Griffith.
  • Participants can be either part time or full time students


Information for Mentors:

The Student mentor program is an annual program offered by the Institute of Architects designed to connect a small group of architecture students (no more than 4 and typically in their 3rd year) with a local practice. The aim of the program is to give students an opportunity to be exposed to life in practice and access to an experienced mentor.

Eligibility requirements for mentors: 

Mentors must be registered architects practicing in Queensland with a minimum of four years’ post-graduate architectural experience and be current members of the Australian Institute of Architects based in either Brisbane or the Gold Coast. 

Architects who take part in the Student Mentor Program can earn 1 formal CPD point per meeting with the student group. To claim a formal point you must record which AACA competency standards were discussed in the meeting: Design, Documentation, Project Management and Practice Management. To keep accurate records it is recommended to use the meeting agenda page here to record your meetings.

If you would like to be involved as a Mentor please contact the QLD Chapter representative Madelynn for further information.
