Supporting your professional development

AILA is piloting a new Continuing Professional Development format in 2020. This format will support the existing events that our members know and love. LATITUDE is a selection of courses that help Landscape Architects stay up to date with policy changes, the latest trends and maintain requirements for registration. Programs will be added through the year and updates are available at /nswevents

LATITUDE workshops and courses are targeted at both members and non-members, as well as allied professionals working in related fields. 

Delivering on the AILA CPD Framework

Landscape Architects are critical in shaping towns, cities and regions across Australia. While this new format is in a phase of piloting, the longer-term intention is that we will offer courses across Australia to support landscape architects with learning and development opportunities that align with the AILA CPD Framework Topics:

Design and Methods
Professional Practice and Ethics
History and Theory
Technology and Construction
Communication and Collaboration

LATITUDE presenters are subject matter experts who are skilled in facilitating training and providing a positive learning experience to improve your knowledge.

CPD for Registered Landscape Architects

AILA’s CPD program keeps landscape architects and landscape professionals up to date with the right knowledge and skills. CPD is a self-directed and planned program, allowing you to take charge of your learning and professional needs, to broaden knowledge, acquire new skills and fulfill career aspirations.

Registered Landscape Architects are required to achieve 30 CPD points annually to maintain registration.

Each hour of the LATITUDE Program equates to two CPD points.
