Setting the standard

Continuous Professional Development

Continuous Professional Development (CPD) is a requirement of registration. It means that before you can renew your registration, you need to tell us you have met our CPD requirement.

We require you to do CPD because it helps you

  • keep your professional knowledge and skills up to date; and
  • maintain and develop your competence and performance.

You can download our CPD handbook below. It tells you all you need to know about what you have to do and offers guidance on how to do it.

Whilst we have set requirements for CPD, we have also tried to make it flexible. But if you have any difficulty meeting the requirement, or are unsure if an activity is acceptable as CPD, please do contact us.
