Picture this: you’ve just been notified that you have been selected for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) monitoring.
To protect the public interest and to preserve the designation you worked so hard to achieve, we select a random sample of members’ CPD records to be monitored each year. Whilst it’s understandable that some members may be nervous about being monitored, there’s no need to worry. CPD monitoring provides you with an opportunity to showcase all your hard work and achievements throughout the year.
To help you navigate the process, I spoke with Ingrid Benjamin, CPD Monitoring Specialist, for her insight. She shared these five tips on what to do if selected for CPD monitoring.
Start recording your continuing professional development (CPD). Note all the learning activities you’ve completed over the last 12 months and start adding them to your My Learning record on the Competency and Learning website today. If you haven’t used the website before, this document outlines how to record your CPD.
Hit submit! It may sound simple, but when your My Learning record is complete and you’re ready to send it to CIMA, make sure you press the ‘Submit’ button. We won’t receive your CPD record unless you press ‘Submit’. If you would like a copy of your record, add your email address in the ‘send to’ field.
Bonus: The truth is that not every CPD comes at a cost. And, guess what? You might already be doing your share of CPD — but just don’t realize it counts. We’ve sourced a suite of online and offline resources that will help you meet your CPD requirements … free!
We understand that being selected for CPD monitoring can feel daunting. If you are unsure about what you need to do, get in contact as soon as you receive your monitoring notification. We are happy to provide support and guidance.
