Continuing professional development (CPD)

CPD audits resumed on 1st September 2020 with Operating Department Practitioners. More information about CPD audits can be found below.

Continuing professional development (CPD) is the way in which registrants continue to learn and develop throughout their careers so they keep their skills and knowledge up to date and are able to practise safely and effectively.

Service update: CPD and renewals

  • Registrants will understandably be concerned about how they can keep up to date with CPD or have time to submit profiles if chosen for audit at this time.

    Individuals should comply with their CPD obligations, where time allows and if it is possible to do so. You can find more information as well as tips for completing your audit here.

    If you have any questions around the CPD audit process, please email
