Are there any hidden costs to membership of Cpd4dentalnurses.co.uk?

  • No there are no hidden costs. Membership which is £39 a year allows you full access to the website and CPD.

Will the verifiable CPD cover all my core subjects?

  • Each year of membership you will have access to 10 verifiable articles which is equivalent to 10 hours verifiable CPD the core subjects will always be covered. The core subjects are: disinfection and decontamination, medical emergencies and radiography. (We also include some articles on complaints and legal and ethical issues). However, we recommend that you also complete hands on basic life support training each year with your practice.

How much verifiable CPD will I be able to access?

  • Each year of membership you will have access to 10 hours verifiable CPD and you will be able to complete an online exam and submit it and immediately receive the results. You can then print your own certificate or the website will save it for you and you can print it at a later date.

How much non verifiable CPD will I be able to access?

  • Each year of membership you will have access to over 20 hours non verifiable CPD reading which will cover a variety of subjects.

I have entered all my details and gone through to the paypal page and then not completed my payment, now when I try to enter my details again to pay, the website says I am already registered. What should I do?

  • Please wait till the next morning and the database will be updated and you can enter your details again and register.

What are CPD logs?

  • There are three CPD logs in the members section of the website. One is the verifiable CPD log and this is automatically created and filled in for you when you complete an online CPD verifiable article and take the exam.
    The second log is for you to complete every time you complete any non verifiable CPD reading. The third log is for you to fill in if you do any verifiable CPD that has not been provided by the website, for example if you attend a course and gain a certificate for verifiable CPD.

Can I print my CPD logs?

  • Yes you can print the CPD logs at any time. The website will store your logs for you as long as you remain a member.

Do I need to print my logs and send them to the General Dental Council (GDC) each year?

  • No you do not need to send your logs to the GDC each year. However, at the end of the first 5 years of your registration with the GDC they may write to you and ask for evidence that you have completed your CPD and at this point in time you can send them a copy of your CPD logs and verifiable certificates.

How often is new verifiable CPD added to the website?

  • A new verifiable article and exam is added to the website approximately every 5-6 weeks.

Will different CPD be provided each year of membership?

  • Yes we will always provide a variety of CPD and will never repeat the same article. But each year we will always cover the core subjects so that after 5 years of membership you will have fulfilled the requirements of the GDC.
