CPD Healthcare is the only CPD approver dedicated to the independent approval of CPD across all medical and health care disciplines. We believe that CPD is about providing a good quality learning experience which is relevant to the intended audience. We use the expertise of our panel of health care professionals to peer-review every CET application, providing support and feedback where necessary. Our network of medical and health care CPD providers is committed to improving standards of knowledge and skills.

  • We ask providers to register with us and to provide us with information about each type of course they run. This information is submitted to an appropriate member of our panel, all of whom are medical and health care professionals with experience of training and education. We assess the organisation providing the training, the delivery method, the suitability of the content for the target audience, the appropriateness of the authors and trainers, whether or not the learning objectives are likely to be achieved and how achievement of the learning objectives will be assessed.
  • Once the course material is approved, the provider is free to repeat the course as may times as they like, as long as they remain a member of our provider network.
  • We offer support to providers in our network, providing them with advice on best practice to help them develop and run the highest quality CPD events.
  • We give providers a suite of CPD approval logos and certificates to use with their CPD courses. Our providers will always give delegates a CPD certificate.
