MyCPD - an update

Our Continuing Professional Development (CPD) platform MyCPD is experiencing technical issues, which have prevented us from reopening the site. We're very sorry for the inconvenience this has caused and are working as fast as possible to resolve the issues.

What has happened?
MyCPD closed at the end of February for routine annual maintenance works. This year - in addition to the routine works -  we transferred the site to a new host, which caused a number of technical issues we hadn't anticipated. These included problems with logging submissions and viewing historic CPD records. The site was initially scheduled to relaunch on 10 April, before the relaunch was postponed until 17 April. Unfortunately, the issues have persisted and the site remains closed.

What are we doing to address the issue?
Our IT staff are working urgently with external specialists to address the problems. The vast majority of the issues have now been resolved but the site will remain closed while we conduct further testing. Other areas of the CIPR website - including the Skills Hub - remain open. Please keep an eye on our social channels and member email for further updates. 

We understand this is frustrating for members and we're working hard to ensure the site is reopened as soon as possible. 

For any urgent queries, please contact Deborah Liddle
