Continuing Professional Development is central to the activities of the Tourism Management Institute (TMI) and that of the Tourism Society. TMI is committed to supporting individuals as tourism destination management professionals and recognises that good quality CPD is essential to ongoing effectiveness as a tourism professional.
The Institute of Hospitality requires members to participate in CPD to ensure they remain competent and knowledgeable professionals. Members are encouraged to keep a CPD record and those members looking to upgrade membership will have CPD activity taken into account when the upgrade is under consideration.
The Institute of Tourist Guiding describes Continuing Professional Development as the way to update and expand knowledge, and to further develop skills. The Institute believes it is essential that members undertake and keep a record of CPD to demonstrate commitment to sustaining assured levels of guiding competence.
