Current FSM-CPD Cycle is expiring on 31 December 2019

A gentle reminder that the current FSM-CPD cycle (from 1 January 2017 to 31 December 2019) is expiring on 31 December 2019.

At the end of the 3-year fixed CPD cycle, FSMs will need to be re-certified through the attainment of at least 30 CPD points ; Senior FSM will require 40 CPD points to be recertified as Senior FSM within the 3-year cycle to continue to practise as a FSM or Senior FSM in the coming CPD cycle.

FSMs that did not meet the requirement of accumulating at least 30 CPD points within the 3-year cycle will be suspended and not be re-certified.

In order to continue to practise as a FSM, suspended FSMs will need to undergo and pass a re-validation course to be conducted by Civil Defence Academy to resume their status as certified FSM.

Senior FSM who could meet only 30 CPD points may be re-certified as FSM in the coming CPD cycle but not as Senior FSM. They will need to pass the Senior FSM examination to be re-certified as Senior FSM. 

Do note that excess points accumulated within a cycle are not transferable to the next cycle.
