Check Eligibility

Examination : None

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) : 30 hours per year

Types of CPD:

CPD refers to the process of tracking and documenting the skills, knowledge and experience that you gain both formally and informally as you work, beyond any initial training. It enables learning to become conscious and proactive, rather than passive and reactive.

  • Formal CPD:
    Formal CPD comes in a well-structured format that can be easily verified and measured. It involves participation in interactive activities such as training courses, workshops, seminars, special interest groups, regional group events and more.
  • Informal CPD:
    Informal CPD involves activities undertaken by the individual, like experiential/workplace learning, reading and research. It involves self-assessed activities like reading relevant publications, news articles, case studies, trade magazines and industry updates.
