Earn up to three CEUs per hour per online course from January 2018.
eCPD is now fully updated to comply with the new HPCSA rules and Guidelines released in 2017. From January 2018, all online CPD short courses with 10 multiple choice questionnaires and a pass rate of over 70% are now worth 2 CEUs per hour. And those with 20 MCQs can earn 3 CEUs per hour.
Accreditation is granted by the regulatory authority based on the prevailing rules. We apply for accreditation yearly and receive our new accreditation numbers at the end of January. All activities completed during January will receive the new numbers retrospectively.

THE PRINCIPLE OF CROSS RECOGNITION OF CEUs
The HPCSA and HPCNA have accepted the principle of cross recognition of CEUs.
"if a CPD activity has been accredited by an Accreditor for a specific Professional Board, all health care professionals may attend that activity if it is relevant to their specific scope of practice. Health professionals will therefore not need to apply for that activity to be re-accredited by their own Professional Board in order to claim the CEUs accrued for attending that activity". [HPCSA Ref. page 9 of CPD Guidelines for the Healthcare Professionals, January 2011]
In addition, "Recognition of CEUs refers to the fact that if a CPD activity has been accredited by the HPCNA CPD Committee all health care professionals may attend that activity if it is relevant to their scope of practice". [HPCNA Ref. Page 5 CPD Guidelines for the Healthcare Professionals Revised 2011].
