Why obtaining CPD training is essential?
Employees and members of professional bodies, institutes or regulators are often expected to attain a certain number of CPD points or hours per year. They need them in order to maintain their chartered status or their license to practice.
Each professional body, institute, regulator or employer sets in place a CPD policy. The number of points or hours can vary significantly from profession to profession and sector to sector.
CPD points or hours are an integral part of what are termed ‘input based’ CPD schemes and can also be known as CPD Credits or CPD merits.
As a general rule:
- One CPD hour is one full contact hour of teaching or learning, and can include Q&A sessions but not networking time.
- One CPD point usually equals one CPD hour. This can however vary from sector to sector.
- In the medical sector, CPD point allocation changes in relation to the particular type of training activity.
CPDSO training courses are available for professionals who hold Level 3 RQF or NVQ regulated qualifications or above, including Podiatrists, FHPs, Chiropodists and various other professionals.
The proof of qualifications will be requested prior attending the courses.
