Our new website - launching this summer
As we move closer to the deadline for our new website and CPD portfolio, we have received a number of requests from members who have yet to download their CPD records and evidence documents from our current site.
Also, there are some additional testing and training for our staff that needs to be completed before we launch the new site.
Therefore, we have made the decision to move the launch until July. This will include our new and improved CPD system and members' login area.
As we progress through the month and closer to launching, we will provide further updates on the progress to you.
If you are a current IBMS CPD user, you will need to get ready for the change and download your evidence files and CPD records as we are unable to transfer to the new site.
About the new site
Using a user-centred design with intuitive navigation, the site will include streamlined renewals and give members more access to update their data records.
IBMS members will be able to log their training and maintain records online using a new CPD system, whilst also connecting to an eLearning system - opening up learning opportunities for more of our members.
Other innovative features for members will include:
- Managing your data and your membership account with more ease to update personal information and preferences
- Tailored content based on your discipline or career
- Greater access to more content from The Biomedical Scientist and British Journal of Biomedical Science.
Get ready for the change
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 up until 19th June. Once the new site is live JBLs will be able to be completed 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.
