What is the difference between CPD and Verifiable/Enhanced CPD?

Created by Simon Whitby, Modified on Mon, 07 Nov 2022 at 09:33 AM by Gary Sharples

Verifiable or Enhanced CPD as it is now known has more requirements than general CPD. 


CPD helps maintain public confidence in Dentistry by showing that Dental Professionals are staying up to date with training. This is so you can give your patients the best possible treatment and make effective contributions to Dentistry in the UK.


CPD for Dental Professionals is defined in law as lectures, seminars, courses, individual study and other activities, that can be included in your CPD record if it can be reasonably expected to advance your professional development as a Dentist or Dental Care Professional and is relevant to your practice or intended practice.


Verifiable/Enhanced CPD is an activity that meets the definition of CPD and for which there is documentary evidence that you have undertaken the CPD and that the CPD has:

• Concise educational aims and objectives
• Clear anticipated outcomes
 • Quality controls


All of the courses that Agilio iLearn offer count as Verifiable/Enhanced CPD.
