What is CPD and how does it work?
CPD is the commitment of professionals towards the enhancement of their skills and proficiency throughout their careers. CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development and is the term used to describe the learning professionals engage in to develop and enhance their abilities.
CPD combines different learning methodologies such as training courses, workshops, eLearning, conferences and events, all focused for individuals to improve their professional capability. Engaging in Continuing Professional Development ensures that both academic and qualifications do not become outdated, and allows individuals to continually upskill regardless of occupation, age or educational level. Continuing Professional Development exists to ensure individuals enhance their skills and abilities once they have formally qualified.
What types of CPD can you register for CPD certification?
There are a number of different types of CPD that can be reviewed for CPD certification. The learning methodologies may vary between the different types of CPD, depending on the subject matter, intended audience and depth of information. The most popular learning activities to register for CPD certification include training courses, webinars, conferences, workshops, seminars, lectures, e-learning courses and CPD certified events. Talk to our team to find out if your training and events are suitable for CPD certification.
