Speaking about the project, Barry Kelly, Software Development Manager at Aurion Learning said:

"We have worked with many professional bodies across Ireland and the UK to develop online CPD management solutions and we're delighted to be adding the Irish Dental Association to our list of valued clients.

Our CPDassist tool will help the Irish Dental Association manage continuing professional development throughout the organisation and make it easier for its members to participate in CPD activities."

Fintan Hourihan, Chief Executive Officer of the Irish Dental Association said:

"We recommend that our members complete 50 hours of CPD per year. CPDassist has a searchable catalogue of approved training activities and easy to use 'record' and 'reflect' functions, so that members can plan, document and assess completed CPD activities throughout the year.

Our administrators can run reports to gain a better insight into CPD activity across the professional body and offer more targeted training opportunities.

We encourage all our members to sign up to CPDassist and to give it a try."
