Obtain your professionl body's Policy on CPD. All registered professional bodies must have a CPD policy before registration of the professional body.
These policies must be revied and updated from time to time, so ensure that you get the latest policy aproved at the Professional body's Annual General Meeting (AGM)?
Each CPD activity is approved by an accredited professional body in the field of expertise and will be allocated a CPD hour value based on duration, content, relevence and complexity o fthe activity and any assessment requirements.
Continuous professional development (CPD) is required to maintain abilities, skills and knowledge required for professionals. This requires ‘lifelong’ or ongoing learning, meaning that CPD activities need to be undertaken every year, during the CPD cycle and is not a once-off requirement.
Have a look at your professional body's policy on CPD and the cycle your body has decided on.
Some Professional bodies work on an annual cycle from a certain date until an end date, other might have a two or three year cycle.
In order to verify your identity for any CPD approved workshops in your area that requires physical attendance, proof in the form of a valid ID document, passport or drivers licensewill be required.
A physical attendance register will be kept at all events and you will be required to sign in, attend for the full duration of the event, and sign out at the end of the event.
For online courses or workshops and approved activities, users are identified on registration, requested to upload a copy of their ID document onto the learner managements system, and issued with unique login and password details.
Please allow four business days from payment received on initial registration for administration to be completed and access to be granted for an online activity/course.
