Workbook Information

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: 2019

Module Workbook Submission Deadline Workbook Re-submission Deadline
A 30 April 2019 31 August 2019
B 31 August 2019 31 January 2019
C 31 January 2020 30 April 2020

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 1-5 tasks need to be resubmitted, there will be no fee incurred for remarking
  • If 6-10 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).
