Information for CPD Event Organisers
IIRRT CPD Endorsement
Endorsement means the process by which the IIRRT assesses the suitability and educational value of the proposed learning programme. CPD events include Study Days, Conferences, e-learning, and literature.
It applies to locally organised events i.e. not formal study. It is to be understood that a CPD ‘Event Organiser’ is anyone who facilitates a CPD Event for Radiographers and Radiation Therapists. The purpose of endorsement is to indicate to Professional Bodies, CORU, Radiographers and Radiation Therapists that a particular CPD Event is of an appropriate standard and is recognised by the IIRRT.

- Only IIRRT fully funded and endorsed events may use the IIRRT logo.
