The following current issues have been identified:
- many regular continuing professional development (CPD) activities have been cancelled or postponed which may affect a CoC holder’s ability to meet their CPD requirements
- there were limited or no opportunities to attend first aid refresher courses or obtain certification of documents in Alert Levels 4 and 3
- face to face oral exams were suspended in Alert Levels 4 and 3
- the scheduling of face to face oral exams in Alert Level 2 may not be permitted or difficult to arrange.
We have new information on our website about exemption from CPD requirements due to COVID-19, renewal of first aid certificates, certification of documents, and oral exams during this time. See more details on Worksafe NZ Website
