What is CPD?

Continuing Professional Development or CPD is the process of tracking and documenting your skills, knowledge and experience gained during your working life beyond your initial training. It is a record of what you have learnt and then apply.

Through ongoing learning it will show that you

  • continue to expand your knowledge and skills
  • meet professional standards
  • meet public expectations
  • meet regulatory requirements

When completing CPD it is important to keep a record or log of the training completed each year.
