Can mandatory training i.e. resus and safeguarding be part of your CPD and put in your revalidation portfolio

No generic mandatory training such as bls fire manual handling safeguarding infection control diversity etc doesnt count . but you could count some role specific updates like wound care cervical screening or immunisation for example .

' taken from NMC 35 hours of CPD, of which at least 20 must
have included participatory learning
As professionals, nurses and midwives have a duty to keep their knowledge and skills up to
date through a continuous process of learning and reflection.
Any learning activity must be relevant to their scope of practice as a nurse or midwife and would
not include mandatory training that is not directly related to the practice. In particular, you can
assist nurses and midwives to meet the participatory element of this requirement. Employers
are a key source of access to training for the nurses and midwives they employ.
We have provided a template to help nurses and midwives record their CPD activities.'
i suppose this can be interpreted both ways. Pesonally i feel basic training is directly related to practice.

I have just read the new NMC revalidation document (that you can get from the revalidation page on this site) and it does state mandatory training can be included x

I went to "nursing in practice" in Birmingham today, there was a great session on revalidation, led by Ben Whur, he is the "senior strategic engagement revalidation lead" for the NMC , he agreed with rugby mom . 
Great bloke made the whole thing make a lot more sense. On the subject of training he said : spending an hour learning which fire extinguisher does what does not enhance the way u do yr job but if yr job involves handling patients then manual handling would count, so would safe- guarding, but his overall view was we should be looking to do good quality learning to enhance our nursing care, if u have to scrat about for an hour spent manual handling then u should question whether you are up to date.
