About Continuous Professional Development (CPD)

Continuous Professional Development (CPD) is a systematic maintenance for the improvement and broadening of knowledge, understanding and skills, and the development of personal qualities. Professional bodies adopt formal CPD schemes to encourage and in theory compel members to keep up-to-date and enhance their competence.
