Recording your CPD

We encourage all professionals to keep a comprehensive record of structured and unstructured points gained in order to complete their revalidation. The NRCPD have designed a handbook to help make clear how this process works. They have also designed a handy table that you as a professional can use to record what you have attended. To download and print off a copy of this table to use yourself please click here.

Please visit our events page to see what CPD opportunities are available for you as a member.
