CPD points inside an LMS


Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is essential for professionals in many fields to stay up-to-date with the latest developments in their respective industries. The use of Learning Management Systems (LMS) to track and manage CPD points has become increasingly popular in recent years. In this blog, we'll explore what CPD points are, why they're important, and how Intuto LMS's CPD feature can help associations track them.

What are CPD points?

CPD points are a way for professionals to measure and demonstrate their ongoing learning and development activities. These points are awarded based on the completion of various activities, such as attending training courses, seminars, conferences, and workshops, as well as completing online learning modules and self-directed learning activities. Each activity is assigned a specific number of CPD points, which are then tallied up to demonstrate the professional's ongoing commitment to learning and development.

Why are CPD points important?

CPD points are essential for professionals as they demonstrate a commitment to ongoing learning and development, which is crucial in today's rapidly evolving business environment. CPD points are often a requirement for maintaining professional certifications and licenses, and they can also be an important factor in career advancement and job opportunities. 

Associations play a significant role in CPD point tracking and accreditation. They act as providers of CPD activities, as well as accrediting bodies that assess and approve the activities that professionals participate in to earn CPD points.

How can Intuto LMS help track CPD points?

An LMS is a powerful tool for tracking CPD points as it allows professionals to access and complete learning activities from anywhere, at any time.  Associations can leverage an LMS to help them assess, approve and track CPD points for their members.

Intuto LMS can be used to assign CPD points to online course completions, collection completions and record external CPD activities against members making it easy to track all their CPD points in a single place.

Intuto LMS can also generate reports that provide an exportable overview of CPD points earned by an individual. This reporting feature can help individuals and organisations to demonstrate their commitment to ongoing learning and development, which can be particularly valuable in regulated industries.


In conclusion, CPD points are an important measure of ongoing learning and development for professionals, and an LMS like Intuto is an excellent tool to help associations provide an easy to use framework for tracking and managing them. By using an LMS to manage CPD points, associations and professionals can demonstrate their commitment to ongoing learning and development while also staying up-to-date with the latest developments in their industry.
