I need to create a Professional Training Plan

If you're a new professional, after you've submitted your application for Professional Registration you may need to develop a Professional Training Plan (PTP) with the assistance of a LIANZA mentor if this step is required by the Professional Registration Board.
Please note this is not required at the time of application, and only if the PR Board lets you know that this will be required.

Your PTP basically outlines the learning and activities you will engage in during your 12 month mentoring period en route to becoming a Registered Library and Information Professional.

Your PTP should contain at least 13 activities, with at least one of these activities in each of the following areas:

This Professional Training Plan example (PDF, 109Kb) has great examples of the different types of activities you can undertake.

For an activity to be completed you need to actively participate and reflect on what you've learned. To ensure an excellent training plan, be sure to include the Bodies of Knowledge.

Once your PTP has been approved by the registration board you can start updating your Portfolio of Learning (PTL). Your mentor is happy to help you with anything you need, so don't be shy!

If you have any questions contact the office and we'll help you out right away!
