In this checklist, we'll cover the complete process of creating and managing CPDs in Learn LMS. CPD, or Continuing Professional Development, includes various learning activities aimed at improving career-related skills, such as courses, seminars, webinars, workshops, reading industry articles, and attending events.
Learn LMS allows capturing CPD activities, including those within the platform and details from external events or activities.
If you're new to CPDs in Learn, there's a helpful recorded event in The Academy available on this topic.

Steps to build your CPD programme
The CPD programme, and CPD period need to be created before qualifying Lessons and Users are linked.
Follow the steps below.
Create a CPD programme
CPDs in Learn are organised through CPD programmes, which are linked to different CPD periods.
Create a CPD period
CPD periods identify the time range within which CPD Hours or Points need to be accrued. CPD learning resources (Lessons) are associated with specific CPD periods and contribute to the CPD period they are completed in.
Set CPD values for CPD Lessons
Administrators assign CPD values (Hours or Points) to each CPD Lesson. Users are also set CPD value targets (Hours or Points) to achieve within a CPD period. As Users complete CPD Lessons, they earn CPD Hours or Points recorded in their CPD learning record.
Steps to share learning
So your CPD programme is ready. Now make sure the CPD Users can see the required CPD programme so that they get to CPD learning resources and work towards achieving their CPD target.
For the below steps, we'll assume that everything needs to be created from scratch:
To assign as mandatory learning:
- Create a CPD Group - if the Group name is the same as the CPD programme name this can help identify they belong together more easily
- Add a User(s) to the Group
- Assign the Course to the Group
To assign as optional learning:
- Create a Catalogue - If the Catalogue name is the same as the CPD programme name this can help identify they belong together more easily
- Assign the Course to the Catalogue
- Create a Group
- Add a User(s) to the Group
- Assign the Catalogue to the Group
