CPD and OPAu PORTAL

You can update your profile by clicking “My Learning Dashboard”. Head to “Settings” on the left panel to add a profile picture, your social media and professional websites, and any other relevant information in the fields provided.

Pictures for your profile and cover photo should be 200×200 pixels and 700X430 Pixels respectively. In Windows 10, open your photo in the Paint 3D app. Select “Crop” from the top menu, uncheck “lock aspect ratio” and enter these dimensions on the right. Save as a different file name. Now you can use this photo in your profile.

We have made it much easier to join our Zoom CPD presentations. You can find notifications about upcoming CPD presentations in the calendar and in our slideshows on opaonline.ca and opau.ca. Both will contain links to the webinar page.

Once you’ve navigated to the webinar page, simply log in to invoke and then click the “Join via app” button and you’re in!

Alternately, add the event to your calendar with the calendar links provided on the webinar page. You can join the webinar via Zoom directly on the night of the CPD by clicking the link in the calendar entry.

Note:

  • be sure to log out of previous Zoom sessions before attempting to join.
  • you must be logged into opaonline.ca to invoke the “Join” buttons.

You can find archived and previously aired CPD programs under “CPD Archives”. You can search for programs by year, program type or LSO Accreditation status.

We have great news!

Completion certificates are now available for all CPD’s completed on opau.ca. Also, attendees for live CPD presentations that watched 85% or more (about 100 minutes) have been enrolled into the corresponding course and marked complete.

Simply navigate to MY COMPLETED COURSES and click the “View/Download Certificate” link on the desired course page.

The Zoom sign-up form and inivatation will indicate whether a CPD is Accredited. The Education Committee works hard to obtain LSO Accreditation for all of our CPDs. Be sure to regularly visit the Learning and Professional Development portal at OPAu.ca for all the latest news and announcements from the Education Committee!

CPD Accreditation for CPDs in the archived library will show the LSO Accreditation below the program description. As a further quick visual reference, all LSO Accredited CPDs will have the following graphic(s):
