  • What internet browser is best to use for CamAPS training?

  • We recommend that you do not use an out-of-date internet browser such as Internet Explorer. Microsoft no longer supports these browser versions making the user experience very poor.

    For the best user experience, please choose another internet browser such as:

    • - Google Chrome
    • - Microsoft Edge
    • - Mozilla Firefox
    • - Safari (Apple)
  • Can I access CamAPS training from home?

  • You can log onto the CamAPS training from any internet-enabled smartphone, tablet or desktop computer that has access to the internet.

    CamAPS training platform is mobile responsive and therefore offers a fantastic user experience from any device.

  • Can I have more than 1 chance at taking the test?

  • Yes; if on your third attempt, you are still unable to answer the questions, the competency will be locked and you will be directed to the resources associated with that competency.

    Having viewed one or more of the resources, the competency will be unlocked and you may again re-take the competency.

  • How will I know what answers I got right or wrong?

  • At the end of each competency, you will be shown the correct answers to the questions.

    We will indicate which of the questions you answered correctly or incorrectly. Please note: your selection is not shown.

    Relevant resources linked to the competency are shown at the bottom of the page should you wish to review them.

  • What is the CamAPS training pass mark?

  • An 80% pass mark is required as people need to demonstrate that they have a good working knowledge of the system to ensure safety.

    Each multiple-choice question series can be taken up to 3 times before the competency is locked.

    Each time the quiz is taken a new series of questions are asked.

    Once the competency is locked, a relevant resource needs to be accessed via the resource library in order to unlock the competency again before further attempts can be made.

  • When will I get a certificate?

  • You will be able to generate a certificate from the website once you have successfully completed all the competencies within the training.

    You will also be asked to complete an evaluation of the learning experience relating to the training that CDEP uses to monitor the overall impact of the training and how best to improve the experience offered.

    The average time taken to complete a topic is shown as training-specific diabetes continuous professional development (CPD) time on the training certificate.

    Certificates are valid for 2 years from the date of completion due to the ongoing development of new treatments and continual evolution of diabetes care.

    Certificates can be printed, emailed or saved as PDFs to your local computer or network. They are also stored under the 'My Learning' tab in your account.
