CPD – Continuing Personal or Professional Development – is the term that describes a commitment to structured skills enhancement and personal or professional competence.
The CPD Certification Service is the independent body operating across all market sectors and in support of all professional institutions, bodies and societies. Its certified CPD ‘quality mark’ is a recognised symbol of quality assured training. Theprime role of the CPD Certification Service is to certify that the content of training courses, papers delivered at conferences and other educationally beneficial material conforms to universally accepted CPD guidelines. The CPD Certification Service helps organisations provide certified CPD and acts as a point of contact for those seeking to obtain certified CPD material. It supports further learning initiatives being undertaken by Government, professional institutions, trade associations, individual organisations, training providers, suppliers and so on.
In 1996, The CPD Certification Service was established in the UK as an independent organisation operating across all market sectors to be complementary to the CPD policies of professional and academic institutions. As the undertaking of continuing professional and personal development has developed internationally, so has demand for formal CPD certification of further learning activities increased from organisations throughout both private and public sectors.
