Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Self-Service Platform for Registered Practitioners

Kindly note that Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) has introduced a CPD Self-Service Platform on the HPCSA Website for Practitioners to submit queries and upload necessary evidence of compliance to CPD programme (e.g. CPD certificates) in order to meet requirements in terms of Section 26 of the Health Professions Act (Act No 56 of 1974). The practice of random sampling practitioners from HPCSA database to verify compliance to CPD requirements is discontinued, all practitioners can upload their CEU certificates as and when they become available on CPD portal on the HPCSA website.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) > COVID-19

Practitioners are encouraged to continue to participate in CPD activities that are relevant to the scope of their professions during the current COVID-19 pandemic. However, the HPCSA understands that practitioners may have difficulty meeting CPD requirements due to, among other things, the cancellation of conferences, CPD activities and changed priorities. The HPCSA will therefore not act against practitioners who fail to submit their CPD portfolio and/or meet expected requirements while the pandemic persists. Further guidance in this regard will be provided to practitioners after the COVID-19 outbreak once has been brought under control.

The HPCSA is also taking an active stance against professionals who are found to be non-compliant with CPD audits. In this new booklet on CPD guidelines. they have changed the awarding of Ethics CPD points from 2 points per hour to 1 point per hour. This essentially means that Health Professionals will need to make double the effort to ensure that they have sufficient CPD points per year
