We select a random sample of 2.5 per cent of registrants to participate in the CPD audit when a profession renews its registration.
Registrants must renew their HCPC registration every two years. CPD is linked to renewal and each time a profession renews we also ask this random sample of registrants to send us a ‘CPD profile’ for assessment.
The profile provides information about their CPD activities and shows how they have met the CPD standards.
