Members - CPD

CPD stands for Continual Professional Development and is the method of recording and monitoring the skills, knowledge and experience that you gain from undertaking your work.

Why record this?

The Society needs to ensure that you are keeping your skills and knowledge up-do-date. This is because members of the public, as well as your fellow colleagues, need to feel confident that when they engage your services or work alongside you that they are working with someone who knows what they are doing.

Registrant Members - CPD

It is anticipated that Registrant Member status will be formally launched early 2017, however, please note that this is subject to the ongoing process of applying to the Professional Standards Authority (PSA) accredited registers programme.
