Annual Requirement

CPD is an annual requirement and coincides with the start and end date of the individual assessor's certification. Within the certification year, the assessor must complete 10 hours valid CPD per certification strand i.e. DEA.  For any additional strands, the certified assessor must complete an additional 5 hours valid CPD per additional strand i.e. DEA & NDEA (NDEA Level 3, 4 and DECs count as one strand).  ESOS assessors will need to contact the organisation they are registered with to confirm their annual CPD requirements.
