Continuing professional development (CPD) or Continuing professional education (CPE) is the ongoing process of developing, maintaining, and documenting professional skills.
Glue Up has an add-on feature that allows organizations to provide a certification workflow to increase efficiency and manage at scale educational programs and courses. You can design certificates, track the attendance of the course, validate credit points, and send notifications to qualified listeners of the course with the certificate in the attachment. For more details on the organization’s side of the add-on, please check this article.
My CPD/CPE in My Glue page
Any Glue Up user can access all their events and membership information from their My Glue page, which is the main portal for users to interact with organizations that use the Glue Up platform. For more information on My Glue, see this article.
If users attended a course hosted by an organization with the CPD/CPE add-on and had their credits validated, once the Certificate has been confirmed, approved or sent from admin side, users will receive notifications within Notification center, with an alert in the red circle icon on the top right of their My Glue page.
My Glue users can submit manually their own Accreditations and credits for tracking purposes, using the distinction icon in the top right of the My Glue page, under My Accreditation.
To add a new accreditation, click the +Add New Accreditation button and then they can add the following information:
