Can I claim CPD for viewing content post-meeting?

When recording completion in your CPD portfolio, suitable evidence could be a certificate of attendance/participation/completion, written confirmation of registration or screen shot of online resources.

Why have I not received a certificate of attendance?
ANZCA/FPM run events that automatically synchronise/upload to your CPD portfolio do not require evidence for the college’s annual verification (audit), hence no certificate for evidence is provided.

If you require an electronic certificate of attendance for alternative purposes (e.g. hospital or practice accreditation), please email
