About the course

The aim of the EAR training course is to provide a level of training to ensure that high‑quality CPD Activities are developed that meet the standards of the CPD Program, and that the associated RACGP administrative requirements are met.

The learning outcomes of the EAR training course are to:

  • describe your organisation’s education development system and your role within it
  • identify the education activity requirements according to the CPD Education Standards
  • outline the differences between criteria for a CPD Accredited Activity and a CPD Activity
  • identify the key criteria and documentation required for a CPD Activity

Role and responsibilities of the EAR

The EAR is the nominee of the provider. The EAR has completes RACGP training to enable them to undertake the relevant RACGP administrative requirements and be responsible for the development, promotion, delivery and evaluation of CPD Activities.

The EAR may or may not be responsible for the development and design of CPD Accredited Activities, depending upon their level of educational expertise. EARs maintain a close relationship with the RACGP through regular contact with the program coordinator from their assigned state office.
