Qualifications & Skills Assessment

Following a scheduled review of accreditation arrangements that was undertaken across all National Boards, the Podiatry Board of Australia (Board) decided in July 2018 that the accreditation functions for the podiatry profession will be exercised by an independent accreditation committee established by the Board for a five-year period from 1 July 2019. The Podiatry Accreditation Committee (Committee) will commence undertaking the accreditation functions on 1 July 2019. To ensure a smooth transition of the accreditation work from the Australian and New Zealand Podiatry Accreditation Council (ANZPAC) to the Committee the following arrangements will apply until 30 June 2019.
