Tips for Entering Your Activities

  • Every activity must be listed separately
  • Ensure you enter the date of the CPD activity (it defaults to the entry date, but you may need to change it unless entering your activities on the day you complete them)
  • Every activity must be accompanied by sufficient information to enable assessment against the item criteria
  • The specific number of hours must be included for each activity within the description field (i.e. 2 hours, 22 hour project, etc.)
  • Activities must take place within your CPD window
  • Do not use acronyms for companies, courses, institutions, etc.
  • Full activity requirements must be met. (i.e. partial points not given)
  • Items that cross over multiple years must be entered one year at a time (ensuring the overall total is not exceeded for the particular item, i.e. a project over multiple years is 25 total even if split over more than one year).


CPD Audit

Selection of submissions for the purposes of auditing is made on a random basis. You must keep your supporting materials and copy of your submitted log for a period of five years after the date of the CPD activity.
