CPD points

Q: What is a CPD point ?

A: CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. This refers to the process of keeping track of learning which can include skill acquisition, gaining knowledge or improving experience. CPD points are a way of quantifying the amount of professional learning and development. The amount of learning will depend on the time spent but also the quality of learning during that time. While as a rule of thumb 1 hour learning equates to 1 CPD point this is not always the case.

Q: How do I decide how many CPD points to allocate to my eCourse ?

A: As a rule of thumb, 1 hour of quality learning is allocated 1 CPD points. Everyone learns at different rates so this is only a guide. A full day quality course is usually allocated.
