How to Renew

Members who have faced challenges related to the Covid pandemic or natural disasters are encouraged to review our Hardship Policy and the Flexible CPD and supervision requirements for 2021-22.

Read our renewals FAQs 2022 for further information on renewing.

PACFA memberships expire on 30 June each year, and all members are required to renew their registration annually between May and July. Clinical and Provisional members must demonstrate each year that they have met the Membership and Registration Renewal Requirements for ongoing professional development and supervision. 

How to renew

Each year, PACFA sends members an email when renewals have opened. You will not be able to renew until you have received this email.

To begin your renewal, log in to your member portal by going to 'For members' - 'Member portal'.

Complete your CPD, supervision, and client hours logs if you have not already done so, and the orange 'Renew now' button will appear on your profile.

Watch the 'How to complete your logs' video.

For a step-by-step breakdown on how to renew, please watch the 2021 Instructional Renewal Video here. We have recently updated our website, so the video may look slightly different, however all steps are the same bar logging in - you now do so by going to 'For members' - 'Member portal'. 

If you are not able to complete your renewal online, please contact the PACFA Office at [email protected] to request a paper renewal form. Applying via the paper application form involves an additional administration fee.

Registrants no longer need to submit evidence of their CPD and supervision hours at the time of renewal, but must keep evidence of this in their Professional Portfolios. CPD and supervision hours will be audited at least once every three years in accordance with PACFA's Audit Guidelines. See Register Audits for details.
