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. You can find an example of this table below:CPD TABLE
