It is important to remember that a Live Educational Event cannot be approved retrospectively. From 1 May 2017, applications for approval of Live Educational Events that take place in the past will not be accepted.
 

You must apply for CPD approval at least four weeks before you intend to advertise or invite people to your event. This gives us enough time to process your application and, if necessary, make recommendations before you advertise or send invitations
 

If your event date is in the past or your application is submitted after you have circulated invitations or advertised the event, it will not be possible for us to advise you about any issues that may prevent approval in time for you to rectify them.
