What are CPD credits exactly?

In short, Continuing Professional Development (CPD) defines the engagement of professionals in activities that aid to develop their knowledge through various learning methodologies:

  • Workshops
  • Conferences
  • Best practice techniques
  • Sharing ideas
  • Online educational programmes

The primary focus is to maintain academic and practical relevance in your field, enabling you to upskill, irrespective of your age, educational background and/or career.
