Psychology CPD WELL is an accredited service provider and has been designed to assist you as a health care practitioner to maintain and develop your academic and professional credentials. The programme offers you a convenient and affordable platform with a variety of options to acquire all your CEUs. This ensures that you are compliant with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) as CEUs are mandatory in order to retain your professional registration.

All healthcare practitioners are required to earn 30 continuing education units (CEUs) per year, and a total of at least 60 CEUs in every two-year period. The professional Board for Psychology specified that the required 30 CEUs per year should include 6 ethics units. (The revised guidelines for psychology can also be access on the HPCSA website click on “Psychology” under “CPD” Link.)

Psychology CPD WELL was approved as an official service provider for a maximum of 42 CEUs in 2019 and has applied for accreditation for 2020. Therefore, these 6 units for specifically Ethics also form part of our comprehensive programme for 2020.


Psychology CPD WELL is a registered short course at Stellenbosch University (SU) and a hard copy of the certificates, after successful completion, will be posted to participants annually. Participants also receive an electronic transcript indicating your CEUs for the completed year.

Record of the units obtained will be stored on the short course system for quite a while. Please take good care of the certificate as SU's policy indicates that certificates cannot be re-issued.
