It is recognised that face to face training courses, meetings and events are not currently being held, and may not be, for the rest of 2020. Members are reminded that CPD needn’t involve attending an event ‘in person’ and can be online learning (with many courses available free of charge), ‘on the job’ learning, attendance at virtual events/meetings, researching a particular piece of work or reading appropriate journals/reports. Commonly a certificate of attendance is provided as evidence of CPD, but needn’t be the only format and, for example, if you read relevant journals or investigate a particular topic the evidence for this could be writing a few sentences about what you learned.

If you are registered for access to the member’s only section of the website, CPD summary records can be maintained ‘as you go’ so when it comes to the end of the year, it simply needs to be printed, signed and evidence attached.

EHO Members are eligible to achieve Chartered EHO status, at no additional cost. In order to achieve/maintain Chartered EHO status, in addition to CPD hours in accordance with the Scheme, a written submission is required in every 3 period. This can relate to any relevant new learning over the 3 year period to which it applies and can be submitted at any point during the 3 year period.

It is noted that a number of Chartered EHOs maintained this status through the introduction of the written submission, and the next report for a significant number of Chartered EHOs will be due by the end of January 2021 (for period January 2018 – December 2020).

If there are any queries on CPD submissions or members wish to register for the members only section of the website, please e mail
