CPD monitoring 2016-2017: 30 June deadline
To enable the Institute to promote that our members have demonstrated their competence to gain their level of membership and that they maintain such, it is a requirement that all members (excluding student members) have an obligation to undertake a minimum of 35 hours CPD per annum, as per Clause 7 of the Institute's Code of Conduct, which states:
Clause 7: Continuing Professional Development
The members (excluding student members) shall:
a) keep themselves informed of current practices and developments appropriate to the type and level of their responsibilities; and
b) be able to provide evidence that they have complied with the requirements for continuing professional development (CPD) as published by the Institute from time to time.
The CPD monitoring requests were sent out to members on 2 May 2017.
In order for CIAT to be confident in its promotion and in compliance with Institute policy, Council agreed the policy which requires us to randomly select 5% of the eligible members for CPD monitoring.
As per the Institute’s policy, failure to forward your declaration that confirms you have undertaken the required hours of CPD could result in you being monitored on your CPD activity for the next three years, or referral to the Conduct Committee for consideration, or investigation as per the Institute’s Conduct and Disciplinary Procedures.
If you have been contacted by the Institute and asked to confirm that you have undertaken the required 35 hours of CPD per annum, please ensure that your response is forwarded to Graham Chalkley, Assistant Practice Director, firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 30 June 2017.
Please note that you do not need you to return your CPD record card — this is for your use and your retention only.
