Continuing professional development (CPD)

Continuing professional development (CPD) or Continuing professional education (CPE) is the means by which people maintain their knowledge and skills related to their professional lives. There is increasing expectation for professionals to undertake continuing professional development regardless of industry sector, career level, job role and responsibilities.

The majority of institutes provide their members with CPD ‘targets’ generally on an annual basis. These targets are defined by accrual of CPD hours, points or credits. The individual keeps a record of their learning within their CPD portfolio and attributes the time to the CPD targets set by their institute or professional body.

The CPD undertaken is recorded by the retention of CPD Certificates of Attendance, CPD Self-Assessment forms and personal CPD Record Cards. Once a CPD certified activity has been delivered, it will be up to the attendee to record their CPD development.
