CET to stay as three-year cycle

Registrants will have three years to earn the next ‘batch’ of CET points after 31 December 2006. The rules for January 2007 to December 2009 were confirmed at today’s meeting of Council after a consultation in November last year showed overwhelming support for maintaining the three-year cycle. Other suggestions from November’s consultation will be incorporated through changes in the guidelines, which don't require a rule change. These might include allowing points for presenting CET events at conferences, and allowing points to be awarded for a series of short lectures or events. Changes to the guidelines would go out for consultation in the next couple of months, and be presented to the June Council meeting for approval. The maximum fee charged to CET providers was also increased by £10, to take account of likely increases in costs to the end of 2009.
