Before we look at the benefits of CPD training and certification for individuals and organisations, let’s understand what CPD means.

Background of CPD

CPD is a largely holistic approach to the concept of ‘professionalism’. It combines different methodologies to learning, such as training, workshops, conferences, small events, e-learning programmes, best practice techniques and ideas sharing, all focused for individuals to improve their personal proficiencies and for organisations to build expertise that they can offer.

The concept of CPD can broadly trace its roots to the decades following World War II, when institutional bodies identified a need for structured further learning post formal qualification. Currently, in a technologically advancing business and professional environment, the need for a disciplined and structured approach to learning has become apparent.

Benefits of CPD training

It is important for organisations and individuals to stay competitive in today’s world and be able to differentiate themselves at moments where it may be required, for example, in tenders for new work, business acquisition or job interviews. As more people become professionally qualified with similar qualifications, CPD can be important as means of separating yourself from the pack.

  • Benefits of CPD for individuals: CPD helps individuals to regularly focus on how they can become a more competent and effective professional. Training and learning increases confidence and overall capability, and compliments career aspirations.
  • Benefits of CPD for organisations: Providing CPD accredited learning benefits your organisation through recognition and increased brand perception. Internal use of CPD encourages and promotes a healthy learning culture for your organisation, leading to a more fulfilled workforce and retaining valuable staff.

Professionals across all industries are aware of the importance of training and development, and the need to enhance skills to stay proficient in the workplace. CPD creates positive change through a methodical approach to learning.
