What kind of activities are recognised for external CPD?

Educational activities that are recognised by Postgraduate Training Bodies will generate external CPD credits.
These include regional and national scientific meetings, conferences and workshops. Credits from international conferences organised by equivalent bodies in other countries are also accepted.

External credits are also awarded for online courses if there is a formal assessment process.

Activities should be relevant to the individual practice of the RMP and reflect the domains of practice and it is possible to accrue credits from a diverse range of professional activity. Postgraduate Training Bodies are responsible for attributing CPD credits to various professional activities. 

The Training Bodies can assist the practitioner in accessing applicable activities for PCS and it will also be possible to access support in order to assess learning needs.
