The importance of Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

The concept of lifelong learning is becoming deeply embedded for persons working in regulated firms, just as it has been for members of professional institutes for many years. Increasingly firms are held responsible by the Central Bank for proving their staff have attained their ongoing CPD requirements.

Anybody looking to develop a learning plan for themselves faces two problems:

    • how best to keep up with developments in the field
    • how to ensure they're looking at the right subjects in the first place
