About Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is the systematic maintenance, improvement and broadening of knowledge and skills. It also encourages the development of personal qualities necessary for the execution of professional duties throughout your working life.

We offer all members of ITI support and guidance with their CPD.  Members should aim to complete a minimum of five CPD days per year (the equivalent of 30 hours in total). Members have a dedicated area via the website where they can access resources, recommendations for training and their own CPD recording booklet. As of November 2012, members will have the facility to log their training and hours on a new online CPD system. CPD is personal to each individual and many professionals undertake CPD activities but may not log their hours. CPD can help you maintain high professional standards as well as providing an employer or client with visual evidence of your efforts.

What counts as CPD?

ITI does not provide a list of ‘approved’ CPD activities, and many different options are available, many of which can be pursued online, without even leaving your desk.
