Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Do I have to complete each workshop day in a row?

No, you can choose the dates that suit you. You must complete the Course in Wound Closure before attending Wound Closure: Advanced Practice, but you can choose to attend each workshop date as it fits into your schedule. We do recommend attending both days close to each other to ensure your newly acquired knowledge remains current.

What is Continuing Professional Development (CPD)?

Continuing professional development is the means by which members of the clinical profession maintain, improve and broaden their knowledge, expertise and competence, and develop the personal and professional qualities required throughout their professional lives.

The CPD cycle involves reviewing practice, identifying learning needs, planning and participating in relevant learning activities, and reflecting on the value of those activities.

How many CPD hours will I achieve for completing this program?

As a general guide, one hour of active learning equates to one hour of CPD. It is the responsibility of the individual student to calculate how many hours of active learning have been completed. The hours of active learning estimated above should act as a guide to CPD hours.

For all other health professionals completing this program, your continuing professional development (CPD) requirements may vary and it is important to remember that it is your responsibility to maintain and register CPD with your professional body. In many instances, your regulatory authority will recognise hours of learning as stated above.

What if I cannot complete the assessment in the allocated time?

If the entire 12 month period expires and a final assessment has not been submitted, The Benchmarque Group reserves the right to deem the assessment Not Competent and remove the student from the program.

How many times can I submit my assessment?

If you are deemed Not Yet Competent on your first and second assessment submissions, feedback will be provided. It is very important that you read all the feedback provided. The Assessor will have identified any areas where additional evidence is required or any questions that need to be reviewed and resubmitted. If, after 3 unsuccessful submissions, you are unable to demonstrate competency on your assessment, your assessment will be deemed Not Competent. Feedback will be provided to you and what the possible following steps and outcomes are.

What do I receive at the completion of the program?

Course in Wound Closure

At the completion of the program, successful students will receive a Statement of Attainment for the Course in Wound Closure (Course Code 10762NAT). A Statement of Attainment is issued when an individual has completed one or more accredited units.

Wound Closure: Advanced Practice

At the completion of the program, successful students will receive a certificate of attendance for Wound Closure: Advanced Practice.
