This tool provides services to European Geologists in terms of facilitating the CPD record. For ILB (International Licensed Body) EurGeols the tool recognises automatically the CPD status. For EurGeols from others NLBs (National Licensed Bodies), the tool is an optional service. You can complete the CPD record using this tool and send it to your NLB or use other tools. For more information on the CPD requirements, please check the information at the bottom of this page.
