You can use your online account to record learning activities in a way that best supports your practice.
We’re aware that some people are having problems recording CPD in the structured and unstructured forms on their online account. This occurs when using legacy internet browsers such as Internet Explorer 7, 8, 9 or 10 or any other browsers that are no longer supported by their manufacturer. You should be able to use our system using manufacture-supported versions of: Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera and Edge.
How to record CPD
You can record CPD using your online account.
Once you have logged in, you will see a 'CPD' button halfway down the page. This will take you to the place where you can record your CPD and view any CPD you've already recorded.
At the bottom of this page there is a box that shows any CPD records you've recorded. You can click on individual records if you want to edit or delete them.
There are also links to unstructured and structured forms on this page. By clicking on these links, you should be able to add your CPD.
Record CPD using the structured form
The structured form has specific questions to help guide your CPD entry. Some questions are mandatory. Other questions are optional, so you can answer those that are most relevant to your CPD activity. Each question relates to one of the CPD standards.
Record CPD using the unstructured form
You can also record your CPD activity and reflection using the unstructured form. You will need to choose which of the CPD standards you think your activity relates to.
If you’re already recording your CPD elsewhere, for example in your personal development records, you can also use the unstructured form to attach your evidence and explain how it meets the standards that you have selected.
Whichever way you choose to record your CPD, you will have the option to upload any supporting documents that you feel are relevant.
All CPD you record should be anonymised. It should not contain any personal information that could be used to identify someone. If you want to use documents that include personal details, you should make sure that these have been removed before you upload them.
You can view, edit or delete past CPD entries at any time from your online account.
Please note that you cannot save a new record until you have completed the mandatory questions.
You may find it helpful to read our guidance on CPD.
Where possible, you should aim to demonstrate all eight CPD standards across the activities you record during the year. There is no expectation that you will demonstrate all eight standards in one piece of CPD. We will expect to see how you’ve reflected on your learning and how the CPD you’ve undertaken has impacted your practice.
Part of this is keeping an up-to-date record of your CPD on your online account. This is how you will demonstrate that you’re eligible to renew your registration each year. Throughout the registration year, we’ll send you quarterly notifications to remind you of your requirement to meet the CPD standard. You only need to record CPD that you have done since the 2 December 2019. There is no requirement to upload any CPD from before this date.
Or if you have not created one yet, create an online account
You can use your online account to record learning activities and events in a way that best supports your practice.
