We know this sounds obvious, but you need to have all your CPD hours done by the 31 December 2022. Even if you complete an eCPD module at 1am on 1 January 2023 this will count towards your 2023 hours.
To meet your annual CPD hour requirement you must also have completed at least one CPD hour in Ethics.
Some designations have category requirements which relate to their specific designation. Please go to your CPD dashboard on IOB Learn to check your category requirements.
If you have attended an event or completed a course that was not run by us, you might be able to get CPD hours for it. If this course was run by your employer, check to see if they have the code you need so that you can claim CPD hours for it. If they do not have the code, you can submit events to be accredited.
To submit an application for event accreditation please click here.
Applications must be made before or within three months of the date the event was held, or they will not be approved for CPD hours.
For the month of December, we only review events held in December.
To be fully compliant you need to have paid your IOB membership and designation fees for 2022. If your CPD or membership fee is outstanding, you can log in here to pay them.
If you have been on sick leave for two or more months or if you have been on maternity leave, carers’ leave or parental leave, we can reduce your CPD hour requirement. Please complete the CPD hours adjustment form which you can download here.
The Annual Update Manual could be worth up to 4 CPD hours for you and is available for download on the home page of IOB Learn.
Once you have read the manual and got the code, go to your CPD dashboard on IOB Learn. You then scroll down to CPD Events, input the code and click 'Search'. The Annual Update Manual details will appear, and you can input the date and‘any venue’.
Your CPD hours must be completed by 31st December 2022 but you have until 31st January 2023 to submit your Annual Return.An Annual Return is a final declaration to let us know how many CPD hours you have done in 2022. Making an annual return is a requirement which must be completed each year.
If you hold more than one designation you will be required to make an annual return for each designation separately.
You should make an annual return even if you have been unable to meet your total CPD hour requirement, letting us know how many hours you did.
If you have already made a return and then complete more CPDhours you can submit a new return.
Log into your CPD dashboard here and click on your designation to complete your return.
