Recertification Audit

Competence and Recertification Audit

Due to the current COVID-19 environment the Board has decided not to conduct 2020 recertification audits. We have updated the recertification programme for 2021. These changes are detailed in the table below. For the full programme from 2021 please click here.
ITEM Previous Recertification Audit Current (from 2021 Recertification Audit)
Work History Required Required
Logbook of 100 hours of CPD over a three year period, categorised by Work Based, Formal, Self-Directed and Professional learning. Required You are still required to complete and record 100 hours of CPD over a three year period (some activities are still capped at 20 hours).
It is not a mandatory requirement to provide a copy of your logbook, however you need to retain this as it may be requested.
Your CPD can now be specific to your identified learning goals, rather than categorised across the four areas.
