CPD Resources

Enhance your professional practice and development with our CPD scheme 

Our CPD scheme provides an opportunity for you to participate in a variety of structured activities and formally record your learning experience and outcomes.

We recognise our members’ continuous learning through the award of IBMS CPD Diplomas. In order to gain an IBMS CPD Diploma, you will need to complete 24 activities and reflection on those activities across three categories.

Achieving an IBMS CPD Diploma by completing a broad range of activities across different CPD categories will enhance your knowledge and skills and support you in identifying and achieving learning outcomes.


Please note 
The IBMS CPD scheme is entirely electronic. The recording, amending and validating of CPD are all carried out online and we can no longer offer to validate manual submissions for CPD diplomas.


IBMS CPD ePortfolio

The IBMS CPD ePortfolio provides a platform for you to record and monitor your CPD activities online.

The ePortfolio is designed to enable you to critically analyse and reflect on your learning experiences and record the resulting benefits to your professional practice and development.

Please read our CPD guides before you start using your IBMS ePortfolio. 

You will need to log on to the IBMS website to access your ePortfolio


IBMS CPD Officers
