Hi everyone,

In the UK our registration body (HPC) now requires all staff to do CPD
(continuing professional development) and prove competency.  My question
is to what extent?  For example: Do you have to prove that they can do
every special stain and technique? and on a yearly basis? 

Can you prove once that you can do all procedures and then just a
confirmation on an annual basis without performing everything stain?
There are no direct specific guidelines for labs to follow!  Any ideas
of how other UK labs are dealing with this requirement for HPC and also
KSF greatly received.
