Many builders and pool builders are understandably nervous about their builders CPD points. It’s a requirement and if a builder fails to secure 12 building CPD points a year, the NSW Office of Fair Trading can revoke a builder’s license—meaning the builder is trading illegally.
Since making changes to the CPD points for builders program in 2008, the NSW Office of Fair Trading has made it easier for builders to earn CPD points. One of the major changes...it’s now possible to earn CPD points online through companies like Blueprint CPD. There’s no need to travel and no need to pay to attend seminars.
