Can I gain points more than once for the same content from the same provider?

Only if the events or distance learning take place at least 12 months apart. This applies even if the two occasions are in different CPD periods – they must be more than 12 months apart.

However, you may gain points for similar topics from different CPD providers – for instance, both providers may be talking about equine parasitology, but the discussion and emphasis given will be different and the result is complementary, whereas there is much less additional benefit from hearing the same presentations twice in a short period.

Generally we will spot duplicates before they are added to your record, but if we spot them later we will remove the points and notify you – do not rely on duplicated points to reach your points target.
