The number of CPD hours indicated in this notice, and on CPD Certificates issued, are the maximum claimable in respect of a seminar/event when attended in full.

CPD Certificates:

CPD certificates are either distributed to attendees at the end of each Module/event, or emailed within a reasonable time thereafter. If we receive any request for CPD certificates (whether for the original(s) or duplicate(s)) at any other time(s) or by any other means (e.g. electronically, or by post, etc.), each certificate will be supplied only on prior payment on each occasion of an Administration Charge of €50 (+ VAT where exigible) accompanied by a stamped SAE when being supplied by us to you by post. Lesson: don’t lose them or omit to collect them yourself before you leave!

To ensure we have the CPD certificate at any event for the correct attendee to take away, please notify us no more than two days before the booked event of such intended substitute or alternative date/venue/seminar/event. Verifiable notice to the Bar Association and/or CPD Board inside that period cannot guarantee the availability of the CPD certificate(s) for collection at the event, and the aforesaid Administration Charge shall apply to any request for same thereafter.
