Get ready for the new IBMS CPD system
Update 12th August 2022
We wish to apologise for the delay to the launch of the new IBMS website. The integration with our member database is complex and taking longer than anticipated. For now, please keep using our current CPD system (and our JBLs).
When we do switch to the new website your CPD record will not be brought across - so you will need to download your list of activities and evidence to date. You will then need to upload only your current CPD activities/evidence onto the new system when it goes live.
However, you will be notified via email and given plenty of time before you need to take any action.
Important changes are coming
Only the data we currently hold on your active CPD diploma will be transferred to our new website CPD system.
You will be required to download any evidence you have stored on the current CPD system, otherwise all CPD evidence will be deemed no longer required and will be deleted.
My CPD will be launched with the new website in 2022.
If you’re already logging CPD or you would like to start soon, there are some important actions we need you to take before we start to prepare for the switch-over.
If you have an active IBMS CPD diploma record
You will need to:
- Download and store your CPD record. Your My CPD history and evidence files will not be transferred to the new website.
- Login to My CPD and save your activities using the PDF or CSV button under CPD history.
To save any files attached as evidence, you can download them by editing the activity and then selecting the file. This will automatically download the file to your device.
If you want a record of your past diplomas, you must download and save it from your records.
If you are part way through an IBMS CPD diploma
If you are unable to reach 24 activities prior to the switch over of the IBMS CPD system, please download the activities you have added so far to the active diploma (see steps above).
Once the new CPD system is in place you will be able to start logging your CPD again.
When you have completed the remaining activities on the new system to reach 24 activities, you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org to validate and issue a certificate for the diploma.
Journal Based Learning (JBL)
JBLs can still be taken on our current site but please do not record on your MyIBMS CPD record. Once the new site is live JBLs will be able to be recorded on the new My CPD system.
Until we tell you the new timescales, keep logging as usual
There’s no need to stop logging your CPD activity. We won’t close the current platform until we've notified all members.
