The purpose of an audit of Professional Development is to assess your compliance with the Board's Recertification Programme. Your Professional Development Report is evidence you are engaging in Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activities relevant to your area of practice and that you are meeting the Board's recertification requirements.
What must be included in a Professional Development Report submitted for an audit?
- Employment and future plans/goals
- Logbook of CPD activities
- Five pieces of evidence
- Three reflective statements
- Peer review
All participants in an audit will be expected to complete the Board’s PDR template (a PDR Guide is available). Use the Board's PDR template – your PDR should reflect the CPD activities recorded in your log book. The Board's 'Recertification Guidelines' (4th ed.) will also be of interest.
What timeframe does an audit cover?
The Audit is based on a three-year cycle. When audit selection takes place the previous three practising years become the audit period.
