What is the difference between a course and a talk?
A talk is approximately one hour in length, and may be followed by multiple choice questions to earn CPD points. A course is usually longer than two hours and may require greater levels of participation, prior to taking the multiple choice test.
How do I sign up for a course or talk?
For CPD and general interest courses, find the course that you would like to sign up for and click on the enroll button. If you have previously registered on the website then use the username and password that you used during registration. If this is the first course that you are taking then please follow the prompts to register. Once registered you will be taken to a payment portal where you will be able to pay for the selected course.
How long do I have to complete a course or a talk?
Content will be available to view for three months from the date of purchase. Please note that the HPCSA accreditation expires on the date indicated in the course description. In order to receive the allocated CEUs, the quiz must be taken before this date. This may be sooner than three months.
What are the available payment options?
As payment is taken through Payfast, no card details are stored on the S.H.A.R.E. Online website. PayFast is developed with the same demands on security and performance as web sites used for banking services and share trading. Your account login, personal details, and all money transactions are secured using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology with high security 256 bit encryption.
How do I get my certificate?
Following each talk or course, you will be required to answer a set of multiple choice questions. Once you’ve achieved 70%, your certificate will automatically be available for download. Certificates will be saved in your profile and will be accessible after the course has closed or expired.
I’m a health professional, are the HPCSA CEUs applicable to me?
Provided the content of the talk or course is applicable to your scope of practice, you may claim the points. This is true even if the presenter is from a different disciple or field.
