Membership Subscription Management
It can be further broken down into:
- How complex is the enrollment process? Is it a single step or multiple steps?
- Do you intend to allow applicants to file in the application online?
- How much information do you plan to collect from an Applicant?
- Do they pay online or offline?
- Do you have the same application fee or it may vary depending on applicants?
- What accounting system are we going to integrate to?
- Is this an automatic or manual process?
- Do you go through an evaluation process before members renew? If yes, what are the evaluation criteria?
- Do they have to pay a fee for renewal?
CPD Course Management
- Is it an online course or offline course?
- Do you use any CPD points or hours in a course? These points or hours are awarded to the members once they complete the course.
- How do you evaluate the result? Do they need the attendee to do any test? Or do they just need to attend the course to consider it as completed?
- Is the course one-off or recurring weekly/monthly?
- Do you need to schedule a room or equipment for the course?
- Do you need to assign teacher/s to the course?
- Does your course generate any certificates? E.g. Certificate of Completion.
- Are your teachers part time or full time? If part time, do we need to keep track of their availability?
- Do you get other members to teach these courses? If so, do they earn any CPD points/hours from teaching?
- Do you have a teacher matrix? For example, John is qualified to teach CPD course A, but not CPD course B.
- Do you pay your teacher by hours? If so, do they need to submit their timesheet?
- Do you need your teacher to take attendance? Or is this done automatically via online sessions?
- What information are you tracking for your member?

Student Portal Access
- Can your student sign up for courses online?
- Can the student download their results?

External CPD Course Management
- Can your members earn CPD points/hours from courses hosted by other providers?

CPD Points Audit
- Do you have a point/hour quota for each member to achieve? For example, each member must collect 100 CPD hours every 3 years in order to keep their membership.
- Do you randomly audit their other CPD entries (from other providers)?
Work Experience Tracking
- Is work experience one of the factors to keep their membership alive?
- Do you keep track of all their past/current work experience?
- Which accounting system are you integrating to?
- Do you need to generate an invoice?
- Do you generate an invoice to a member or their employer? Or can it be both?
- Other than invoice, what other finance document do you need to generate?
Web Session Integration
