In 2019, YIPs will be partnering with CPD Anytime to help our members track their development.
All our professional development events held across Australia that are accredited with development points by ANZIIF and/or NIBA will now be linked into the CPD Anytime platform. This will allow members who attend the event to simply scan the displayed QR code and the points will be instantly uploaded to their training register.
We really believe that the app will provide our members with a simple way to keep track of their professional development points, both from events held by YIPs, through to many other industry events and training programs. It will also save them time but not having to manually initial sign-in sheets!
All CPD activity, both scanned or manually entered, is automatically collated into a personalised training register and can be emailed and printed with a click of a button. Join online or download the App - but most importantly, let us know how it works for you!? @ firstname.lastname@example.org
