About the Site

Back in 2007, I was a university lecturer, and a local ambulance service commissioned a resource to assist their staff with the first HPC audit of paramedics. As a result of this, the first CPD Portfolio Builder was born and was very successful. Over time, it became apparent that staff from other ambulance services also wanted somewhere to record their CPD and not just for the HPC either. In theory, everyone in the NHS has an annual personal development review and so keeping track of the Key Skills Framework dimensions also became important.
So in 2009, I set about creating the version that is in front of you. It has all of the functionality of the original along with a few extras, such as the audit tool and easy ways to export all of entries you have entered with just a click or two.
I am often asked why it is free. It is free because recording of CPD is very easy, you just need to know how to play the game, and I take exception to other companies fleecing my profession. That said, I have another project, Standby CPD, which is a paid subscription service and I do use this site to advertise the issues.
As with any site, there are no guarantees...if I am hit by a bus tomorrow, eventually the site would disappear once the bills stop getting paid, but in the meantime, feel free to join me in recording your CPD!
