CPD for 850379 : Enslin Naude : 01/01/1985 :
As we are phasing the CPD in, (intended to be 5 year cycle), some will have, at entry, only 1 year, others 2 etc before the next 5 year cycle "kicks in".Your specific cycle information is listed just above the blue form.
CPD items are captured by year, starting from your registration date's month. Enslin's registration date is 01/01/1985 implying that his CPD year will run from January to December each year. To start of everybody may start entering CPD items dated from 01/01/2006.
You must therefore select for which year (1-5) in a specific cycle you are maintaining data for. In all cases 2006 will be year 1.
To view or maintain data, you must select the category:
DEVELOPMENTAL ACTIVITIES or
WORK-BASED ACTIVITIES or
On the blue form it also indicates the maximum credits allowed (over 5 years) for each category. The white boxes will, by year, inform you of your status per category per year, with the blue box in front of each white box, stating the brought forward (excess/shortage) from the previous year. A shortage is actually almost meaningless, because that might be deliberate. It merely serves as basic information, and is basically only for the purpose of you, as the CPD user.
