What happened to my completed courses from the eLearning platform?

To create a seamless transition for our users, all information of courses purchased and completed from 1 January 2021 will be transferred to your new CPD Online account.

All historical data prior to that date will be retained by the Law Society and can be access on inquiry at cpd@lawsocietywa.asn.au.

I was halfway through a course – what do I do?

If you did not complete your course before 31 December 2021, all incomplete current courses purchased from 1 January 2021 will be transferred to your new account.

However, any progress made will not be retained and you will need to start the course again.

Where are all of my Certificates of Completion?

Certification of Completion will be available in your new account for courses purchased and completed from 1 January 2021.

All historical data prior to that date will be retained by the Law Society and can be access on inquiry at cpd@lawsocietywa.asn.au.

My course was not transferred and now I cannot find it – where did it go?

Unfortunately, not all courses that were on eLearning will be moved to the new platform, as some of the content is no longer current and has already been retired.

This means that some courses purchased and completed post April 2021 fall into this category and will not earn you CPD points for this current year.

In this instance, we will substitute for free, any non-current courses that you may have bought that are partially or fully completed.
