Every 12 months certified irrigation designers are required to complete a re-certification process.
Irrigation Australia ensures that certified personnel remain active in the industry and are keeping their knowledge and skills up-to-date.
Participants can demonstrate this by earning the required continuous professional development points (CPD) in the required timeframe to maintain their active status. Those failing to earn the required CPD points or pay their renewal fee will be considered inactive.
Irrigation Australia aims to conduct random audits of 5% of all CPD returns each year.
10 points are required every 12 months, regardless of how many CID credentials you have. Points awarded above 10 (to a maximum of 10 points) can be accrued to the next year and applied as carry-over points (IAL certification staff will need to apply this if applicable).

These activities will be approved and verified by Irrigation Australia. Your renewal invoice will be located under 'My Purchases' . You will receive an email advising that you have met the criteria for renewal.
Reminders will be sent periodically both before and after your renewal date.
If you are experiencing difficulty, please contact us on our toll free number 1800 949 891 or [email protected] and we can assist with your renewal or CPD activity. Refer to the current CPD chart for reference: CID – CPD Points Allocation V2 August 2021
Certified Irrigation Designers who do not renew are considered to be inactive and are not permitted to use their CID status for professional reasons until they renew their certification.
If the inactive period is less than three years, renewal can be made by paying all renewal fees and submitting sufficient CPD points to cover the inactive period/s.
If the inactive period is for more than three years, the certification is forfeited and re-certification will require the applicant to start the certification process over from the beginning, including all relevant examinations.
