Continued Professional Development (CPD)
Upgrade your skills with continued professional development
Learning doesn’t stop once your certificate is framed on the wall... At the IAB, we help you:
- Build on what you’ve achieved so far
- Stay at the very top of your game
- Boost your earning potential
This is where full membership comes into its own. Aside from a wealth of special privileges, the opportunity to enhance professional standards is what attracts thousands of like-minded people to the IAB.
Be the best you can
Want to achieve your minimum 30 hours CPD per year? It’s easy at the IAB. Take your pick from a choice of proactive and reactive activities through the year:
Proactive learning includes: workshops, CPD events, online courses and network meetings
To accrue reactive points, you might: read journals or newsletters to stay on top of current trends, read online forums, chat to peers about technical issues – to name but a few.
Remember: one hour’s learning equals one CPD point. With constant advice, resources and events on offer every year, you can keep learning at your own pace.
Are you a member in practice?
If so, you must continue professional development by law to maintain your standards. A Certificate of Supervision, Compliance or Practising Certificate renewal can only be granted if you have kept records.
Your portfolio could include:
- Receipts for learning materials/courses
- Attendance or completion certificates
- Diary entries noting dates/times/learning
For an easy way to log your CPD points, just download a record sheet here. Equally, for more advice, you can always get in touch with our membership department, who are more than happy to answer your questions.
