When working a busy schedule, juggling commitments and giving your all too each client, it is all too easy to push thoughts of your own professional development to one side. However, it is worth thinking about yourself and your development as a practitioner and an individual. This is where CPD training can help by letting you pursue the areas that interest you in more depth, developing your career in the direction you want it to go.
To enhance the integrity of REPs as the touchstone for professionalism within our industry, a CPD audit will be conducted on 31st October 2014, to ascertain the compliance of REPs members with their CPD requirements.
The process for this audit will be as follows:
- A proportion of members with over two years’ continuous membership will be randomly selected.
- These members will have their current CPD compliance checked against the agreed criteria.
- If the member is lacking in CPD points, they will be given six months to make up the missing points.
- If the member still has not completed their CPD requirement by the end of this six month period, then they will be considered to be in breach of their membership requirements and suspended from the Register.
Through this auditing process, we are keen to enhance and reinforce the integrity and trust that being a member of REPs entails.
We are aware that many of you will have completed CPD already but may not have logged it onto our system. We advise that you complete this activity before the audit period.
Those selected for audit will be contacted in November.
