Applying for a Certificate of Currency

A total of 50 points minimum from activities undertaken in the previous two years is required to qualify for a Certificate of Currency in 2013. Points are to be gained over at least two categories.

A Certificate of Currency lets the public, health funds and professional bodies know that you have undertaken activities to further your education relevant to orthoptics. A Certificate of Currency is accepted by a number of health funds as qualification to issue a provider number for private health rebates.

As each activity is undertaken list the information on the form under the following headings:

  1. Activity Date/s:
  2. Name and Description of Activity
    such as: conference title, web page address, journal/title/page, name of clinic/hospital name and location,
  3. Accreditation Ref. Code:
    Write in the reference number from the accredited activity list or "S/A" for Self Assessed activities; and
  4. Points per Category.
  5. Total the columns

Remember - activities will only be accepted if they have been accredited within 3 months of the activity taking place and prior to 30 June 2013.

DO NOT send proof of activity (eg receipt, attendance certificate, reference pages, web page prints) - keep these documents on file in case you are selected for random audit.
