Frequently Asked Questions

I am ACCA qualified, if I use Horizon CPD's tool, will I still have to type all my entries into the ACCA website to submit my annual declaration?

View answer

No. The ACCA only requires that you keep a record to show the activities you have completed, why they were relevant and how you will/have applied the training. You may use their online tool to record the entries but you can also keep these records in your own format or that of your employer.

Horizon CPD's tool meets these requirements and allows you to retain historical records and manage your CPD learning more effectively.

The ICAEW has a tool to record my CPD, why do I need Horizon CPD?

View answer

Horizon CPD is designed for the whole firm, your company. Nothing will give you, as a manager, a clearer view of your team's development.

You can help your team members take control over their CPD, keep your whole team's CPD records securely in one place and, as part of the planning and feedback process, control your training budget more effectively.

The ICAEW says that how you record you evidence is up to you but you need to demonstrate the three steps of reflect, act and impact. Horizon CPD includes these steps (plan, learn, evaluate) and more. ICAEW states that you can record evidence using ICAEW's record form or you can keep your CPD details in Word or Excel and upload them to www.icaew.com/cpd.

How many Super Users can my business have?

View answer

We do not limit the number of Super Users you can have in your business and there is no extra charge per Super User. Remember that Super Users can see everyone's CPD entries and change the Company setting though so we would recommend limiting access to appropriate staff members.

What happens if someone leaves my company?

View answer

If a member of staff leaves, they can export their record and take it with them to keep. The Super Users in your business can remove the member of staff from the system, deactivating their licence and freeing it up for a new joiner to use.
