Time to bring your CPD records up to date

IIMS members are reminded that 31 December 2015 marks the end of the current three year CPD cycle. If you have yet to bring your points up to date, it is vitally important that you do so at your earliest convenience. If you have any queries about your CPD record, or the points you are permitted to claim, please email Jan Cox.

The new three year CPD cycle will commence on 1 January 2016 and finish on 31 December 2018.

You may want to look at the CPD points list. A couple of new activities that gain you points have been added. And remember, it is your responsibility to ensure that your CPD records are not only up to date, but that you have also managed to accrue a minimum of 24 points.

So just a reminder as to how the IIMS CPD system works

Members will be required to achieve a minimum of twenty four points accrued over a fixed three year period. For example January 2016 to December 2018. This means that every three years the system will be reset back to zero.

The programme is managed through the Head Office Administration team and all questions can be answered by contacting them by email. Members will be sent a record sheet and guide on accruable points with their subscription form. Or use the link on this page to view the CPD points table.

NB. There will be members who are semi retired, or retired, who wish to maintain their membership but who are unable to accrue adequate points. Dispensation will be awarded on submission of a written application. Each application will be reviewed by the Director of the Professional Assessment Committee and considered on individual merit.

CPD is the responsibility of the Director of the IIMS Professional Assessment Committee and the Director’s decision on all matters concerning CPD is final.
