Quick Codes and QR codes
CPD Quick Codes have been introduced to aid members to quickly add the details of their CPD activities, for example after attending IET courses and events. When using a Quick Code to add your CPD, the description for the activity will be filled in for you. Some Quick Codes will also include the date of the event and the default number of CPD hours. All you have to do is check the information provided for you, decide whether to pin the activity to one of your development goals and add your reflection.
Quick Codes will be rolled out during 2023 and so whilst you may not be provided with a Quick Code at the next IET course that you attend, look out for them as we increase the number of places where they are provided throughout the year. If you don’t have a Quick Code for the CPD activity that you’re adding, then this field can be left blank.
QR codes can also be used to scan the Quick Code into Career Manager when using a mobile device. Just use the camera on your device and you’ll be navigated straight to the Career Manager Add CPD activity form where the Quick Code information will have been entered for you.
