Changes to the OISC's CPD Scheme
Following the implementation of the OISC’s new principle-based code of standards the OISC has decided to make changes to its CPD scheme. With immediate effect the OISC has removed the requirement for advisers to undertake a set number of CPD hours per year and to record their CPD activity on the CPD website. Also removed with immediate effect is the requirement for core courses to be accredited.
The CPD website will close on 30 September 2016 and the free online OISC courses will cease to be available.
It is recommended that you print or download a copy of all your CPD records since April 2013 as after 30 September 2016 this information will no longer be available to you.
Details of these changes can be found in the Resource section of this website and further information will be sent to advisers over the coming months.
Each course has been allocated a certain number of CPD hours and this is specified in the course introduction. The hours will be automatically recorded in your statistics on passing the associated quiz. You are allowed 3 attempts to pass each quiz and the hours can be allocated only once in a 12 month period.
An accessible version of each course is available.
Any time, any place!
Access to the courses is through any modern browser: Internet Explorer 8 or higher, Firefox, Chrome or Safari released in the last 12 months. If you have IE11 and are unable to open the courses, it is recommended that you switch to IE10 temporarily.
