The Graduate Diploma of Cardiac Electrophysiology is made up of nine (9) units of competence. These nine units are grouped and delivered as three modules (A, B, and C).
|CEPPRE801B||Apply the principles of electrophysiology (EP) to diagnostic procedures|
|CEPBCS801B||Define and diagnose bradyarrhythmias and conduction system dysfunction|
|CEPTAC801B||Define, diagnose and treat AV Node re-entrant tachycardia|
|CEPTAC802B||Define, diagnose and treat AV re-entrant tachycardia|
|CEPTAC803B||Define, diagnose and treat rare supraventricular tachycardia syndromes|
|CEPTAC804B||Define, diagnose and treat atrial tachycardia|
|CEPAFL801B||Define, diagnose and treat atrial flutter|
|CEPAFI801B||Define, diagnose and treat atrial fibrillation|
|CEPVTC801B||Define, diagnose and treat ventricular tachyarrhythmias|
These nine units of competency are assessed by a combination of on-line knowledge assessment and workbook-based practical tasks. All knowledge and practical tasks must be completed satisfactorily for all units.
Practical assessment is an essential component to evaluate each student’s ability to put the theory taught into clinical practice. Take home workbooks will compliment each module, and must be completed and returned to CEPIA for assessment. Workbook topics will cover all clinically relevant aspects of each module, including demonstration of basic electrophysiology, diagnostic pacing manoeuvres, ablation properties and tachyarrhythmias. Access to an EP lab and procedures is essential for this component.
Workbook submission timetable: 2018
|Module||Workbook Submission Deadline||Workbook Re-submission Deadline|
|A||30 April 2018||30 June 2018|
|B||31 August 2018||31 October 2018|
|C||31 January 2019||31 March 2019|
All tasks in all workbooks must be completed satisfactorily, as defined for each task
- If students initially submit workbooks which are not satisfactory, they will have the opportunity to resubmit their workbooks after first receiving feedback and instructions from CEPIA
- If 1-4 tasks need to be resubmitted, there will be no fee incurred for remarking
- If 5-10 tasks need to be resubmitted, a fee of AUD $50 will be incurred for remarking
- If 11 or more tasks need to be resubmitted, a fee of AUD $100 will be incurred for remarking
- Students are still able to attend future modules regardless of how they perform in each workbook
The course is designed so that all three modules and their respective assessments can be completed within a 12 month period, however assessment deferrals and/or extensions may be requested up to a maximum of 5 years after course enrolment. After this time if a student still has assessments outstanding and wishes to continue on with the course additional fees will be incurred.
If they do not wish to continue after this time they will be issued with the relevant “Statement of Attainment” or “Statement of Attendance” for the relevant Units satisfactorily attended and/or completed.
Late Penalty :
Due to administrative requirements associated with the marking of workbooks, a fee of AUD $50 will be incurred for every calendar day a workbook is overdue (up to a maximum of AUD $500).
