Having officially launched the new Members Area at the beginning of the month, we've had some great feedback. We are glad to hear that it’s becoming a useful resource for you. However, in order for you to get the most out of it we thought we’d put together a little guide on how to use it.
What is available to me?
On the new Members Areas you will be able to add your Qualifications and CPD (which we will go into details further on this blog), you will be able to find the latest high street offers on the new Members Area which can be found on the same page the Qualifications and CPD icon. You’ll also be able to renew your membership and download any necessary resources such as your insurance and registration certificates all from this central page.
On the central homepage you will also find an icon that shows your current CPD points, as seen above.
You will have received an email from us prior to the launch of the new site stating that “You do not need to do anything in terms of transferring your details and CPD points” The new Members Area currently displays the most recent CPD added and the number of points allocated to your current membership period (i.e. 2014-2015). We are continuing to develop this function of the site and we will keep you informed of any updates to the Members Area.
