JRCALC:CPD to ParaPass transition
The ParaPass app replaces the JRCALC:CPD app.
If you have an active subscription to JRCALC:CPD, you will automatically be given a subscription to ParaPass.
If you have the JRCALC:CPD app installed on your iOS or Android device, you will need to update to the new version via the iOS App Store/Google Play. If your device is not set to automatically update, you will need to go into the iOS App Store/Google Play to update.
You will be able to log in to the ParaPass app with the same email address and password that you used for JRCALC:CPD. You can reset your password by visiting www.parapass.co.uk
ParaPass works on an ‘in or out’ basis. If you have a subscription, you can access all content but, if your subscription lapses, you will no longer be able to access anything.
Your JRCALC:CPD quiz results will be available on ParaPass, although please do note that these will no longer be arranged by units, instead they will be by guideline.
Want to access the old JRCALC:CPD? We will be making an archive version available for one month after the launch of ParaPass.
Standby CPD to ParaPass Transition
All content from Standby CPD and the relevant quizzes from Standby CPD appear in ParaPass.
Standby CPD readers, you will shortly be given a free upgrade to ParaPass as part of your current subscription. Look out for more details on this soon. Do not be tempted to buy a new subscription to ParaPass!
