CPD - Continuing Professional Development

What is CPD?

CPD (Continuing Professional Development), describes the learning activities that professionals engage in to develop their skills and knowledge and continually ‘up skill’ or ‘re-skill’, to ensure qualifications don’t become out-dated or obsolete and knowledge is kept up to date.

Many organisations expect employees or members to undertake Continuing Professional Development - gaining a predetermined number of CPD points per year - both to keep staff or members engaged and to ensure their organisation maintains a sustainable and competitive advantage.

Every course taken with Centre of Excellence counts towards your CPD. The number of CPD points each course is worth is outlined under the ‘Accreditations’ section of each course’s description. Upon completion of your course assessments, you will receive 3 certificates. An accredited certificate from the awarding body relating to your course, a CPD certificate which shows your CPD points on it and a certified Diploma certificate from the Centre of Excellence.
