Recording and submitting CPD

Recording and submitting CPD

It is important that you keep your CPD records up-to-date and safe.  We encourage all registrants to update us about the CPD they have done each year.  You may be asked to send in your verifiable CPD documentary evidence after the end of your CPD cycle.

How should I record my CPD?

You can log your CPD hours at any time using your eGDC account, but you must also keep all documentary evidence you receive for all verifiable CPD that you undertake, as we may ask to see it. We have an advice sheet about quality of verifiable CPD. You should also keep a written record of all the CPD that you do. 
 
You must keep your CPD records for five years after the end of the cycle in which they were completed, as we may need to see them.

When should I send in my CPD?

Towards the end of each registration year, which ends on 31 December for dentists and on 31 July for DCPs, you will be asked to log in to your eGDC account and make an annual declaration of the CPD hours you have completed.
 
At the end of your CPD cycle you may be asked to send in your documentary evidence for the verifiable CPD you have done, as well as a log of your general CPD hours. You should only send in your CPD evidence if you are specifically asked to do so.
