MANAGE YOUR CPD HOURS

Your 'My Account' page tracks the CPD hours that may be claimed, lists all content watched and whether the corresponding quizzes were passed. Here, you can also download certificates of completion.

Subscription administrators can also view the CPD records for all users on their organisation's account.


CPD QUIZ

Where an item has a corresponding quiz, that quiz must be completed in order to claim the advertised number of CPD hours.

Upon successful completion of the quiz, a .pdf certificate will be automatically generated. This certificate can be used as evidence that you have fulfilled the requirements to claim CPD.

This is a requirement across all regulatory bodies for online content.
