eCPD offers three options to obtain your CPD points online (through express courses, specialised courses, and sponsorships).
When purchasing an annual membership, you will gain access to all the express courses (consisting of clinical and ethics related articles) available on the eCPD® Platform. You have the option to read the material online or download it to read at your leisure. Therefore, you can easily earn all your required Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Points as per your Professional Board. You will have access to the express CPD courses for 12 months from the date of purchasing your membership, and we send you a renewal notice prior to your membership expiry date.
To obtain your CPD Certificate, a pass mark of 70% is required and you have three attempts to obtain this mark. Once you have successfully passed the assessment, the system automatically generates a CPD certificate and saves it to your CPD Manager for future reference.
If you have opted not to renew your membership then after expiry, you will be unenrolled from any course that you have not completed, obtained a 70% pass mark for or claimed your CPD Certificate for.
Price: R845 including 15% VAT per annum per person
These courses are developed to equip you with specialised knowledge on a variety of topics. These courses are not part of the annual membership and are purchased individually. The cost per course varies based on the topic specialisation, in-depth teaching, presenter, and duration of a course.
We work closely in collaboration with the subject matter expert to ensure the quality of the presentation, and interactivity excellence. Please look at the dropdown menu under "Specialised courses" to view the selection of courses. Once you have successfully completed the requirements for the individual Specialised Course, your CPD certificate is automatically generated and saved in your CPD Manager for future reference.
