I'm just starting on my first 3-year PD development journey. In the first category of PD catalogue “Skills Development and Knowledge”, you have to 'attend a formal training session, workshop or seminar' if you want to earn the required 30 points. I'm not sure what kinds of such sessions/workshops are available out there and how much I would need to budget for earning this 30 points? Anybody has any idea?

I just saw a 4-day training session in China which costs about A$745.00 and wonder if I should take part in the training, not that I expect it will be of any help to me, but it will kill two birds with one stone: I will be earning 40 points under category 1 and another 20 points under category 3 for "spending 4 weeks or more in a LOTE country"( I plan to spend 4 weeks + 1 day).

Looking forward to hearing about this Apr 3

I'm just at the beginning of this process and would love to hear the experiences of others during their PD.

All I've done so far is to click join on the AUSIT events that are emailed to me.
