CPD (Continuous Professional Development) Update

CPD Update – November 2021

As part of the requirements as an AVI, maintaining your Continuous Professional Development is a mandatory part of your accreditation.

Due to the restrictions imposed by the Coronavirus pandemic, claiming CPD points for a number of in-person events was impossible. We therefore doubled the CPD points awarded for any attendances to online events from 2 CPD points to 4 CPD points to ensure our AVIs were not disadvantaged.

Recent trends have shown that in-person events are now starting to open again as we begin to emerge from the pandemic. The decision has therefore been taken that CPD points for any online attendances occurring from 1 January 2022 will revert back to the normal 2 CPD points.

Note: this excludes the eCMID AVI Accreditation Course (1 day), the Part Two Mandatory Refresher Course – 5 Year Revalidation and our Festival of Knowledge seminars which will all remain at 4 CPD points.

We will of course monitor the situation and remain flexible to individual circumstances.

Any questions or concerns regarding the CPD requirements, please contact the Accreditation Scheme Administrator, Pui Si Chung at
