We are proud pioneers of the original "10 points in one day" CPD programme for experienced migration practitioners. Our programme delivers a high-quality and advanced CPD experience that offers maximum points in the minimum time.
The programme will be led and facilitated by our Accredited Immigration Law Specialists, Peter Papadopoulos and Kathryn Viegas. Peter and Kathryn have extensive experience conducting advanced CPD for migration agents and lawyers through their previous contributions to CPD run by Migration Practice Essentials (MPE), the Migration Institute of Australia (MIA), the Law Council of Australia, the Law Institute of Victoria (LIV) and the Immigration Advice & Rights Centre (IARC). Peter and Kathryn are excited about sharing the latest developments in migration law and policy along with practical tips to get those more complex cases over the line.
Contents of the CPD Express course programme
The contents of the programme will be finalised closer to the date of delivery, and will include recent and important legislative developments, policy changes from the Department of Immigration and Border Protection as well as a round-up of significant decisions from the Administrative Appeals Tribunal and the courts.
