The New CPD Scheme

The Presentation given by Glenys Rugman of the Geological Society Chartership Committee on 21/02/2017 is available to download.

It is important for Fellows to be aware of these changes:

 "" The new Continuing Professional Development reporting system will soon be available on the Geological Society website.

 ""  Keeping up to date with CPD is not only a requirement for Chartership and post-Chartership, but is essential for all Fellows as part of our personal and professional development.

 ""  The Geological Society will be rolling out the online CPD system which will be easier and clearer to use.

 ""  This presentation will detail the changes of the new system and how to use it.
