CPD Points System If a doctor finds that a course (or part of a course) is useful, they can count it as CPD with one CPD credit for one hour of relevant educational activity (excluding meal breaks etc). If a doctor attends a course and finds that is was of no educational value, it should not be counted as CPD. Please contact your college for further information.
