SACPCMP has confirmed that membership with ACHASM results in 5 percentage points as part of the SACPCMP assessment. This is a once off. Then there are 5 CPD points available for attending the annual ACHASM conference.  There will of course be a conference discount for ACHASM members. ACHASM is also looking into other training opportunities which will most likely generate CPD points.

If you haven’t registered yet, now is the time.....!
