What is CPD?

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) was established in 1996 and is an independent accreditation. CPD is the term used to describe learning activities professionals engage in to develop and enhance their abilities. CPD enables learning to become conscious and proactive, rather than passive and reactive.


CPD hours are required to maintain Chartered professional status.


Twintec CPD Seminars


Our CPD seminars usually last for 1 hour, consisting of a presentation followed by a Q&A session.  Pre-Covid, these were carried out at your own place of work where we provided a sandwich lunch, however, due to the current circumstances, we have continued to carry out CPD seminars but over Microsoft Teams. This has worked very well, the only downside being that you need to provide your own sandwich!

All attendees receive a CPD certificate.


What’s in it for employers?

The sharing of knowledge from industry experts shares knowledge of innovations and best practice within the industry.  CPD contributes to maximising staff potential and provides a useful benchmark for annual appraisals. 


career progressionWhat’s in it for employees?

For Chartered professionals it contributes towards your annual CPD targets.  For all it will help manage and direct your career. The process of recording your learning can help you gain confidence about the skills you already have, focus on your goals and how to achieve them, think about any gaps in your skills and knowledge and how to address them. CPD is beneficial for career progression and advancement, it ensures that you maintain and enhance the knowledge and skills you need to deliver a professional service to your customers and clients. It makes sure that you and your knowledge stay relevant and up to date. You are more aware of the changing trends and directions in your profession.


One CPD point is equal to one hour of active learning.
