CPD Update
Thanks to all members who have been highly articulate with your CPD record online. This is especially helpful when the CPD assessors are trying to verify non-SSSI events or other activities.
Please be patient while the assessors, who are working through the verification and approval process, ensure that all relevant CPD requirements for registration purposes have been met.
Note that should any aspects need to be clarified, contact will be made with you.
If you have particular concerns regarding your CPD please email in the first instance, so that your query can be appropriately referred. Thank you in advance for your forebearance while the team work through all CPD approvals and CPD that remains pending as part of the registration checking procedures.
