Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Requirements
The Podiatrists Board currently requires that practitioners who wish to hold an Annual Practising Certificate, undertake the Board’s continuing professional development (CPD) Recertification programme.
The new CPD requirements, (introduced 1 January 2018), are based on a 2 yearly cycle. All practitioners need to read and be familiar with the Board’s CPD Recertification Policy and its requirements, as well as the associated documentation providing further information on undertaking CPD activity and related Policies.
