CPD and Points

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is the process of tracking and documenting all the skills, knowledge and experience that you gain – formally and informally – as you work beyond your initial qualifications or training.

CPD is one of the requirements for renewing your professional membership (if you have one), as on-going learning means you are keeping your industry knowledge current and relevant. Just like pilots, doctors and many other professionals, financial industry professionals need to keep their skills and knowledge up to date.

In some cases, professionals must earn at least 20 CPD points every year. Each hour of learning you complete = 1 CPD point. These points are either:

You have to prove your learning, e.g. provide an attendance certificate from seminars, workshops, etc. In some cases, a minimum of 8 verifiable points is required (12 points minimum for Certified Technical Financial Accountant, Certified Technical Public Accountant, and Certified Financial Accountant members).

Self-study that you keep a record of yourself, e.g. reading industry articles.

Learn ViewPoint is one of the 'Verifiable' ways to earn CPD points and the points are attached to your certificate for proof.
