Why CPD training matters?
CPD – Continued Professional Development essentially ensures that you continue to be proficient and competent in your profession while also furnishing you with essential skills that could help you progress with your career. It’s not just a one-stop-shop, either – it continues and develops throughout your career.
Accredited CPD training means the learning activity has reached the required Continuing Professional Development standards and benchmarks. The learning value has been scrutinised to ensure integrity and quality.
