I've completed the post-CPD quiz and I got 70% and above but the points earned have not reflected on my iCPD profile. What's the problem?

This could be because of two scenarios:

a) The Board registration number on your Daktari Online profile account does not match that on the your iCPD profile account. If this is the case, after submitting your quiz results and having attained 70% and above, you'll see the message: {"msg":"Wrong registration number format! Confirm the length. (Should be 5/6 characters starting with A or B) ","success":"0"}. This means your CPD points have NOT yet been submitted to the iCPD system hence your CPD points not updated. NOTE: Only add '0' before your Reg. number if it's below 1000 and should match what's on your iCPD profile.

Solution: Ensure your Board number is correctly input on Daktari Online profile account and is similar to what is on iCPD portal. Should you have any challenges on updating it, don't worry, just get in touch with us on:
