How to record CPD

The CPD Scheme requires that 'Members must keep a record of their CPD Activities for the previous CPD Period. This record will help support their Reflective Practice Discussion(s). This may be facilitated using the IFoA’s Optional Recording System.'

You must keep a record of activities to facilitate your reflective practice discussions but this can be in whatever form you choose. 

You no longer have to submit the record to the IFoA every year or use the IFoA’s recording system. If selected for a reflective practices discussion with the IFoA, you will be asked to provide your record to the IFoA team in advance. This is simply to inform the discussion.

The CPD recording sytem is still available for those that would like to continue using it. It has been updated to reflect the requirments of the new Scheme and allows you to record your objectives, activities and learning outcomes.

Evidence of participation in a CPD activity will not be required.

How do I access the CPD recording system?

To access your CPD record, simply sign in to the website using your username (which is your ARN) and your password.  Click on the "My account" section at the top right hand side of the page, then scroll down until you see the CPD button.  Click here and it will take you through to record your CPD.

What is a CPD Activity? 

'Activities that involve development and learning relevant to a Member’s Actuarial Work (current or future) or professional development, which address a personal development need and have an identifiable Learning Outcome. Those activities can be wide ranging and include, for example, lectures, seminars, workshops, webinars, personal reading and research. It could also potentially include carrying out Actuarial Work where that has a relevant Learning Outcome.'

What is a Learning Outcome?

'Knowledge and/or skills which the Member gained as a result of taking part in an activity.'
