Set the start and end dates for CPD cycles.

Video tutorial: Create CPD cycles and streams

Before you start creating your CPD cycles, you will need to determine whether or not you need to allocate your CPD cycles to different streams.

CPD cycles cannot overlap each other, so streams are used when multiple concurrent cycles are required. The table below illustrates how this can be set up.

Stream 1

Stream 2

2017-2019
1 January 2017 to 31 December 2019

2018-2020
1 January 2018 to 31 December 2020

2020-2022
1 January 2020 to 31 December 2022

2021-2023
1 January 2021 to 31 December 2023
