Get to know our new 1CPD platform with bespoke support sessions

25 August 2021

Our new digital platform, 1CPD, was launched last year with the aim of helping veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses plan, record and reflect on your CPD.

The platform is available as an app for iOS and Android, as well as a web version accessible from our website, and is intuitive to use, with helpful features such as voice recording (app version) to make keeping up with your CPD on the go easier to do.

Latest figures show that, while a majority of both veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses have now signed up to the platform, a significant proportion of the professions – particularly older vets – have not yet used 1CPD.

The RCVS wants everyone to benefit from using the platform to aid their professional development, and so we’d like to ensure everyone has help at to get started with 1CPD.

This is why the Education Team is now offering 1-2-1 support sessions on using the platform – available to both those who are already signed up but have some questions on how to use it, and those who haven’t been using it and need a bit of extra help to get going.

Members of the professions don't need to have any prior technical knowledge before signing up, so please don't hesitate to get in touch if this is of interest by emailing

Similarly, if you have any questions about outcomes-based CPD and reflection, please get in touch with a member of the Education team by emailing  There are no silly questions, so please do contact us if you’d like some help.

Informative videos of a series of online workshops we held about using the 1CPD platform – as well as outcomes-based CPD, reflection and what counts as CPD – are also available to view
