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 more advice, you can always get in touch with our membership department, who are more than happy to answer your questions.
