CPD FAQ's

WAVE offers both onsite and virtual delegates the opportunity to achieve 15.5 CPD Hours, including 10 Therapeutic Hours & 5 Interactive Hours. 

How can I achieve the maximum CPD Hours available at WAVE?
If you attend in full, all the grouped sessions over the weekend and choose to complete all the optional MCQs set on both Saturday & Sunday, passing 3 or more on each set of 5 questions, you will score the maximum available.  

Do Virtual Delegates have the ability to score the same hours as an Onsite Delegate, in particular the Interactive Hours?
Yes, they do. Your time spent online watching WAVE 2021 is calculated and you must watch all of the presentations within a 2hr or 1hr grouped session to score for that particular component. 

How will it work for a Virtual Delegate taking part in an Interactive session?
Virtual Delegates will be organized into small Zoom breakout rooms when the presenter invites you to take part in a discussion between your fellow WAVE Virtual delegates.
It's a simple process to open Zoom via the link assigned to you & just as simple to return to watch the rest of the live presentation on the WAVE Delegate Connect website.
Onsite Delegates will be seated in discussion groups prior to the start of the interactive session.

How long after WAVE do I get to complete the MCQS?
The MCQs will be available to delegates on the WAVE Delegate Connect website from the 9am Friday 19th March to 9am Monday 29th March 2021.  You can view the questions, download the questions and attempt the questions online as many times as you like during the time available.

How many MCQS are there and what are they worth in time?
There are 7 sets of MCQS on Saturday and 7 sets of MCQS on Sunday.
Each set contains 5 questions and to pass, you need to correctly answer 3 out of 5 each set.  Passing a set of 5 questions allows you to score an additional 15 minutes towards the maximum CPD hours advertised.
