How do I record my CPD? (Affiliates and Associates)

You will need to upload your CPD activities onto the CPD platform, which is accessed directly from MyCIM by selecting MyCPD within the Resources tab. You should be working towards an annual requirement of 35 credits and the online tool will calculate the credit value for each activity that you input. You can find a guide to the programme and what activities can be claimed here.

How do I record my CPD? (Members, Fellows and Chartered Marketers)

You will need to complete four reflective statements based on your learning activities and these will need to link to the Professional Marketing Standardstwo relating to the core standards and two relating to the technical standards. These will need to be uploaded onto the CPD platform which is accessed directly from MyCIM by selecting MyCPD within the Resources tab. You can find further information here.

When do I need to submit my CPD?

Your CPD year runs alongside your membership year. Therefore, the deadline to submit your CPD will be the end of your renewal month. For example, if your renewal date is the 01 July you will have until the 31 July to submit via MyCPD.

I am a Chartered Marketer do I still need to submit my CPD record?

All Chartered Marketers will be required to submit records of their CPD every year.  We will review a sample of these to verify relevance and completion, if you are selected in the sample and your records are not complete you will be asked to resubmit and maybe at risk of losing your Chartered Status if you do not so.
