Continuous Professional Development Support Scheme

Courses that are free of charge for doctors enrolled on the CPD-SS

We offer a wide range of courses and events that are free of charge for doctors enrolled on the Continuous Professional Development Support Scheme (CPD-SS).

The CPD-SS is an educational programme open to all NCHDs working in the public health service who

  • are in non-training posts
  • hold a 2010 NCHD contract with the HSE
  • and are registered on a Professional Competence Scheme.

Doctors on the CPD-SS get free access to training and educational activities worth up to 20 external CPD credits or totalling three days per year, whichever is greatest. The deadline to enrol on the Scheme was 30 September 2019.
