Different forms of CPD

Almost anything which improves your knowledge and skills can be considered Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

Formal CONTINUING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

Formal CPD is generally structured, and consists of interactive and participation-based activities such as attending training courses, workshops, seminars, special interest groups, regional group events, undertaking e-learning courses, making presentations, writing articles or presenting at conferences.

These types of activity can be more easily independently measured and verified by attendance certificates, test results, preparation of written materials, etc.

Informal CPD

Informal or self-assessed CPD is less structured.

Typically, activities include reading relevant publications, news articles, podcasts, trade magazines, case studies and industry updates and attending webinars. It can also include study and revision for professional examinations, reading industry-specific news feeds or undertaking research into relevant fields.
