The CPD Log enables you to edit and manage your CPD Activities.
- CPD Settings - allows you to set up the start date for your CPD year.
- Export, Import and Print allows you to take your CPD record with you, for example into a meeting where you will not be able to access the LMS.
- Add CPD allows you to manually add an Activity that will count towards your CPD record. For example, a seminar you have attended.
Grouping and Filtering makes managing your CPD more efficient. Click on a type of Activity in the Activity Type Filter on the left to view only that type of Activity or use the CPD Category to filter by Structured or Unstructured CPD records.
The CPD Log can also be filtered by Activities that are Planned, Require action and Eligible by clicking the appropriate View button using the Filters at the top (the buttons will only be available to click on where there is content available e.g. completed activities and the name of the sections may be different depending on your LMS setup).
The default view will be for the current CPD year which automatically resets when your new CPD year is due to start (using the example in the image below, the log will reset and display the new year on 1/5/2018). You can view historical CPD by changing the CPD Year starting: dropdown menu.
Activities completed outside of your LMS will need to be added manually by clicking the Add CPD button (as shown in the screenshot at the top of the page) and completing the form (shown below). All fields that have an asterisk are mandatory.
Future CPD Activities can also be added in this way and will be recorded as Planned activities. For example, this could be a seminar you are expecting to attend next week. Complete as much detail as required but select Incomplete in the Activity Status dropdown.
Click Add when finished. This will record the Activity as Incomplete which will be indicated by a clock icon. Once you have later completed the Activity you need to return to your CPD entry, click on it to edit and change the status to Complete and enter a Reflective Statement to update the Activity to Eligible CPD.
|CPD Log Icons|
|Completed Eligible Activities are indicated by a tick.|
|Activities which require further action (i.e. Reflective Statement needs to be completed) are identified by a yellow warning triangle icon.|
|Activities which have been added to the LMS in advance (i.e. a future-dated seminar) and are therefore Incomplete are identified by a clock icon. Planned Activities are any Activities you enter manually using the Add CPD button. It does not include outstanding Activities in the My Activities area.|
|Clicking on the pencil icon will enable to you edit the CPD entry.|
