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.
What is CPD?
CPD stands for continuing professional development, a standard that HCPC registrants must meet.

CPD audits and submitting your profile
What happens if you are selected for audit, and how to complete and submit your CPD profile
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.
Given the circumstances, our Council had taken the decision to cancel the audit process for physiotherapists and arts therapists. We also did not go ahead with CPD audits for dietitians, chiropodists / podiatrists and hearing aid dispensers.
If you are not one of the above professions and have a previous CPD audit which is outstanding that you would like to query, please email email@example.com.
Please note our CPD audits resumed on 1 September 2020 with operating department practitioners, you can find more information as well as tips for completing your audit here.
