We have now updated our guide to how many CPD credits you can claim to also include College Assessors and Specialty Reviewer for job descriptions.

Are you sometimes unsure as to how many CPD credits you can claim for certain activities? Or even if you can claim CPD credits in the first place?

Did you know that there are many other activities apart from attending meetings which allow you to claim CPD?

For example, if you become a College Assessor or Specialty Reviewer for job descriptions, you can claim CPD credits.

We have updated our handy guide to help you claim CPD credits. We have also provided examples of activities where you can claim credits to make claiming CPD easy.


If you participate in an activity not in this guide you can still claim CPD credits by self accrediting. This means you determine how many CPD credits to award yourself based on the activity and using other similar activities in the document as a guide.

Please remember to upload supporting information. You can do this in various ways, for example:

  • upload a file from your computer
  • scan a file and upload 
  • take a photo with a smartphone or tablet of the evidence and upload
  • enter details of the activity and what you learned in the Description text box.
