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 and Edge.
How to record CPD
You should record CPD using your online account.
Once you’ve logged into your account, there will be a 'Your CPD' button halfway down the page. This will take you to a page where you can record new CPD and see any CPD you've already recorded.
At the bottom of the page there are links to add new CPD using either the structured or the unstructured form.
The summary box shows any CPD you've already recorded. You can select individual records to view, edit or delete them.
Structured and unstructured forms
Both forms have questions are that are mandatory. You can’t save your CPD record until you have completed all mandatory questions.
Text boxes have a maximum character limit. If you reach the maximum character limit, you will get a warning. You will not be able to save your CPD record if you go over the limit.
For security reasons, the system will log you out after 60 minutes and you will lose any unsaved CPD records. We recommend that you type up your CPD in a Word document first and then copy and paste it into our system to avoid losing any unsaved work.
You can upload supporting documents that you feel are relevant using both forms. If you already record your CPD somewhere else, for example workplace personal development records, you can attach this and explain how it meets the CPD standard.
All CPD should be anonymised. CPD records must not include any personal information that could be used to identify someone. If you want to use documents that include personal details, you must remove the details before you upload the documents.
What to record
You should upload your CPD now and keep recording throughout the year, so your CPD is up-to-date. Recording CPD at least 4 times a year would be good practice. Our registration renewal cycle is annual, so you must record some CPD every year.
You should try to demonstrate all 8 parts of the CPD standard during the year. You do not need to demonstrate all 8 parts in every piece of CPD. We want to see how you have reflected on your learning and how the CPD you have done has positively changed your practice.
You only need to record CPD completed after 2 December 2019. There is no requirement to upload any CPD from before that date.
Or if you don't have one create an online account
