When you click on the My CPD Records link on the Web Tools home page, you will see the following screen.




This shows that no CPD records have been entered yet. To enter a CPD record, click on the Add a New Record link. This will open the record details page where you can enter the details of your CPD.


This is the CPD Details page which is used to add records of periods spent on continuous professional development.




Type in the Title of the CPD record. This should be descriptive of the activity you took part in. Choose the date you did this by selecting it on the calendar, use the left and right arrows at the top of the calendar to change the month. Enter the time you started, ensuring that you include the colon and specify the time in 24 hour format, ie. if the time is in PM, add 12 to the hours (05:00pm = 17:00). Enter the number of hours and minutes you spent on this instance of CPD into the duration fields. You should enter two digits into both these fields, even if the value is below ten. So 0 is 00, 3 is 03.


Select the most appropriate entry from the combo boxes. If you do not know what to select for these fields, leave them blank and talk to the system administrator responsible for managing the Web Tools. Finally, enter details of what you did, or the scope of the course into the Scope field. If you took a course and have the course briefing then you can copy and paste this information. Once all fields have been entered, click on the Save button to complete the CPD record entry.


If you do not have specific details required for this page, or simply wish to return to the CPD list without entering a record, clicking the Cancel button to return.


Note: If you enter invalid information, use the wrong format for certain fields or leave a required field blank, you will be shown a message box giving details of what must be changed. For example, if you do not use a colon (:) to separate the hours and minutes in the time field, this would be considered an invalid format.


When you have entered some CPD records, the My CPD Records page will show a list of your CPD records.




You can click on the field headings above the records to change the order of the data list. If you want to change or add details to one of your CPD records, locate it in this list and click on the Edit link. This will reopen the CPD Details page, as described in the previous page of this document, where you can modify any of the information you previously entered. When editing a record, make all the changes and click the Save button to keep the alterations or click Cancel to exit without saving, which you may wish to do if, for instance, you realise you are modifying the wrong record. Pressing the Delete link will remove the associated record from your CPD list. Only do this if you have duplicated information, or if an administrator has contacted you to remove a record. They may do this if you enter records of training that are already recorded for you in the main database because it was organised internally. Only eight records will be displayed on the list at a time. If you have more than eight records, you can view other records by navigating through the pages. This is done by clicking the page number at the bottom of the CPD records list.
