I clicked on the Claim CPD button but my CPD has not been recorded
When you click the Claim CPD button you should be redirected to the online CPD form to complete. If the form fails to load after clicking the button it could be caused by slow internet speed or an interrupted connection – it is worth reporting to the VLE Team so they can look into the issue. Your CPD claim will only update if you have completed the form and clicked the submit button
The Claim CPD button is restricted to one use even if you experience technical issues before submitting your claim – if there is a blue tick in the box to the right of the Claim CPD button this indicates the button has been used and you won’t be able to use it again. You will therefore need to add your claim manually and request verification of your viewing from the VLE Team.
If you are experiencing any other issues with accessing IFoA video content or recording your CPD please contact VLE.firstname.lastname@example.org.
