Cifas launches new functionality for Apollo digital learners to log CPD time

28 February 2024

We have exciting news to share… users of our experiential digital learning solution, Apollo, can now claim Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hours.

Apollo is our immersive, video-led educational programme that uses action-packed film, animation and engaging storytelling to deliver universal fraud awareness training. Each bitesize episode is five-eight-minutes long, and the entire ‘boxset’-style series offers an interactive way for employees to learn how to identify and prevent fraud and financial crime happening to them or their organisations.

Whether you start on the ‘Personal Awareness’ pathway to defend against the dangers of identity fraud and criminal recruitment, or you’re keen to explore our ‘Business Awareness’ offering to detect key threats and protect your organisation, as an Apollo learner you can now clock all your hard-earned time in one place, in real-time, year-on-year.

Through our newly launched CPD recording tool, you can also:

  • Have all your Apollo learning added automatically to your CPD log when you complete a course.
  • Add any offline activities that complement your counter-fraud learning – such as webinars, training and conferences.
  • Keep a secure record of all the CPD hours you’ve logged on our Apollo platform for years to come.
  • Download your CPD log as an easy-to-access file to further evidence learning and ensure you are working closely with your employer to plug any gaps in fraud prevention knowledge and awareness.

Increasingly, we are finding that the more employers we speak to about implementing Apollo into their organisation, the more they’re expecting staff to complete CPD learning hours as they are not only highly recognised but can also provide a good measure of an employee’s educational activity.

There are many benefits of CPD training. Advantages include offering you the chance to show your organisation how committed you are to professional development, ensuring your skills remain up to date and you’re continuously improving, and further enhancing your counter-fraud awareness credibility – for both you and your business.

For further information about our new CPD functionality and how to add CPD hours, contact If you’re new to Apollo, request a demo today.
