The scheme is designed to reduce bureaucracy and duplication of effort. Maintaining a record is an integral part of the CII CPD requirement. We would encourage you to use the online tool which is aimed at making the completion of the record accessible, easy to use and transparent.
The tool will encourage you to consider personal areas for development in the
fundamental and important categories of technical knowledge, business
knowledge/skills and interpersonal skills. You will be able to assess skill
gaps, determine and plan appropriate development activity and then record the
benefit achieved as a result of completing that activity.
Submission of the record can be paper based or online through the facility provided on the website. Confidentiality and the protection of our members, data is high priority and guaranteed allowing you to work confidently in a safe and secure environment.
The Institute does not insist that your records are submitted using the CIIís recording tool. Where you are required to comply with the CPD requirements of another institute, regulator, network, employer, or other professional body, you are able to submit their logs provided that they meet the principles of the CII scheme. You must be able to submit a copy of that record when asked to do so.
Using the CII CPD scheme online recording tool enables you to benefit from the educational support information available online and provides you with the facility of immediate links to technical data, CPD events and up-to-date news.
