GANZ Renewal requirements for practising members
Graduate Members, Members, Organisational, Clinical and Fellow Members only
The renewal process requires that you have met the following renewal requirements in the membership period from 1 July 2015 to 30 June 2016:
- Between 20 and 30 hours of Continuing Professional Development (CPD), depending on the category (e.g. course work, workshops, presentations, self-directed learning, contribution to the profession) as described in the CPD Policy. CPD in Gestalt or a compatible modality is encouraged.
- 10 hours of clinical supervision or 15 hours if you have completed more than 400 hours of client contact.
- Current Professional Indemnity Insurance.
When completing your online renewal, practising members must complete the online logs in the User Profile for your supervision, client hours and professional development hours.
You should also get a paper version of your Supervision Log signed by your supervisor(s) and keep this documentation, together with evidence of your insurance cover (if required) and evidence of your completed professional development, in your Professional Portfolio. You can use the Client Hours and Supervision Verification Form available on the PACFA website.
Audit of Renewal Documentation
You are required to keep all documentation to support your membership renewal in your Professional Portfolio to ensure you have documentary evidence that you met the renewal requirements. All members will be audited at least once every 3 years. For details, please see the Audit Guidelines available on the PACFA website. Failure to keep the necessary supporting documentation will result in suspension of your registration.
