The IFoAs membership team will begin their annual audit of continuing professional development (CPD) records this month.
For the first time, however, completion of the Stage 3 professional skills training (PST) requirement will also be monitored.
The membership team will randomly select from the following categories:
- 10% of all Category 2 members; and
- 10% of all members who were expected to complete Stage 3 of the PST requirement in the 2013/2014 reporting year.
If selected, you will be asked to provide written evidence of your participation in activities that meet your minimum requirements. If you have recorded more than your minimum hours, you will not be expected to produce evidence for each activity.
Some examples of acceptable evidence are:
a signed register of attendance;
a communication from the organiser of an event, which confirms your attendance;
a certificate vouching for completion of a course or activity;
hard copies of lectures or presentations delivered by you;
articles or papers written for publication;
written note from another Fellow of the IFoA vouching for your attendance at or completion of an activity; and confirmation from the provider of an online resource.
If you have any questions about the monitoring process or acceptable forms of evidence, please email the membership team.
