Enhanced Verifiable CPD from the
University of Birmingham

Dental Radiography IRMER refresher

This short course provides a refresher for professionals who have previously undertaken relevant CPD in radiography and radiological protection. Dental staff in the UK are required by law to be "IRMER Trained", and update themselves regularly.

This law applies to everyone involved in taking and/or processing radiographs, not just GDC registrants.

The Dental Radiography IRMER refresher online CPD course has clear and concise aims, objectives and anticipated outcomes, listed below. These will appear on the Dentaljuce Enhanced CPD Certificate, along with the time spent, dates, and detailed topics you studied within the module. Certificates can be printed at any time, covering any range of dates. Dentaljuce CPD complies with the UK GDC's requirements for enhanced verifiable continuing professional development.

Your Professional Development Plan (PDP)   
Regulatory authorities recommend that CPD/CE is undertaken based on learning needs that you have identified and entered into your PDP. Some authorities may not accept your CPD as verifiable unless it has been identified in the PDP before you undertake it.

Before starting this module, check that the learning outcomes are what you require, and that you have entered the need into your PDP. Here is an example PDP entry for this module.
