The Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Scheme of AAT has been established with a view to enhancing the professional skills of members and to maintain a better relationship between the Association and its members. This CPD Scheme also creates a bridge between the Association and the members, in order to retain them in membership for a long period of time. This scheme is a self-regulatory continuing professional development system and will be monitored by the Association. With the implementation of this scheme, the automatic 5-year post qualification system to qualify for SAT and FMAAT titles ceases to operate.
With the implementation of the CPD Scheme, advancement of membership categories has been revised as follows, taking into account CPD credits: -
Advancement to SAT category
Five years of executive level experience in one or more core areas after obtaining the MAAT title and earning 120 CPD credits.
Advancement to FMAAT category
Five years of managerial level experience in one or more core areas after obtaining the SAT title and earning 80 CPD credits.
The CPD Scheme, which was implemented on the 01st January, 2009 has been revised with effect from 01st April, 2011 and is subject to further revision.
