CPD Defined

When setting up CPD (Continuous Professional Development) you are defining a goal of a Start and End Date with a targeted amount of hours for a particular Job within the company. You can Configure CPD Settings here and then assign them to Jobs. Based on this, when an Employee is linked with a Job, and you enter training records, the system will show you what the annual requirement is from a CPD perspective. It will also track the actual CPD hours that have currently be taken, when you record Training Type as CPD. You can show this information in a Users Dashboard. The CPD Hours Settings allow you to record the requirement for a period and this period will be used for the current required calculations. Example: Taken v Required.
