EDUCATION News

On the subject of CPD points, IISA recently distributed an update on the subject which for ease of reference, is noted below. The Individual CPD Application form and CPD Activity Calendar is enclosed for your reference. "CPD for the period 01 July 2014 – 30 June 2015"

All the best for 2015!!

2015 sees the start of the revised curriculum and whilst the IISA Study Track was circulated in October 2014, we elected to make this available once again. Should you have any queries regarding your choice of studies, kindly direct these to Charmaine Koch who may be contacted at Charmaine@iisa.co.za. Please access IISA web site to ascertain cut off dates of registration for your studies.

As to the IIKZN Workshops, information and dates will be advised following our AGM In March 2015.
