Call for PDS Submission January 2017

Application for Practicing Professional (PP) under the LAS Professional Development Scheme (PDS) is now open.

Successful applicants will qualify as PP for the period of 1 January 2017 to 31 December 2018. Please submit your application if your PP status has expired since December 2016 or if you are a new applicant.

The closing date of application is  13 January 2017. For more information see

The Revised scheme

Just a reminder that we had revised the PDS since Jan 2015 to make it simpler for you to document your professional development activities. Instead of calculating points for activities, you now only need to count the number of activities you are engaged in during the same 2-year period – in this case from 1 January 2015 to 31 December 2016.

To qualify for the Practising Professional (PP) award under the Revised PDS, you need to fulfil ALL the following conditions:

  • Engage in at least 12 professional development activities in the 2-year qualification period.
  • Engage in activities from minimum of 3 out of 4 groups (A, B, C & D)
  • At least 2 of these activities must be from Group A (Compulsory group)
