ATMS Accredited Membership
The essential general requirement to be recognised by a health fund is to maintain professional standing as an ATMS Accredited Member.
There are 4 essential components to maintain Accredited Membership:
Completion of 20 CPE points per year
Current Professional Indemnity Insurance of at least $1M
Current senior first aid certificate
You need to have paid your membership fees for the current financial year
Continuing Professional Education
Each Accredited Member accepts the professional obligation to regularly update clinical skills and professional knowledge. The ATMS Continuing Education (CPE) Policy requires an Accredited Member to accumulate 20 CPE points per annum, with each year being from 1 July to 30 June. Some Health Funds require at least 20 CPE hours/points per year directly related to the therapy concerned, to be completed within a membership year.
Current Professional Indemnity Insurance
Each Accredited Member must maintain a current professional indemnity insurance policy. Please ensure that there is no break or gap in cover, and that policy coverage is continuous for all periods. Members with break or gap in cover will lead to the loss of recognition with health funds.
Current First Aid Certificate
Each Accredited Member must maintain a current Provide First Aid certificate. Please ensure that there is no break or gap in cover, and that the Provide First Aid (or equivalent) certificate is continuous for all periods. Members with break or gap in cover will lead to the loss of recognition with health funds.
Payment of Membership Fees
The membership year for ATMS is 1 July to 30 June.
