CPD Online Diary
An electronic CPD Diary is available for Members to record their CPD. This makes recording and summarising CPD and reflection more straightforward; there is no longer a requirement to submit an annual paper summary, or ‘CPD Return’.
The web address for the Faculty’s online CPD diary is https://portfolio.fom.ac.uk/login
You can request your log in details from: CPD@fom.ac.uk.
NB: The CPD year now runs from 1 April to 31 March each year.
