What is CPD?
CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. It’s the process of learning and developing your knowledge and skills whilst you work. This shows colleagues, clients and the regulator that you are committed to upholding your competence.
At the CISI we offer you a wealth of opportunities to develop your expertise through online resources, events and publications, and document your progress.
The benefits of CPD
Completing CPD is a display of commitment to individuals’ roles and their wider profession. Members are therefore awarded a certificate on completion of each CPD year. This certificate, alongside their personal CPD record, is tangible evidence of a dedication to ongoing professionalism.
Completion of full CPD years also provides members with many opportunities. Alongside the correct qualification, it allows members to apply for a Statement of Professional Standing – necessary for all practising retail investment advisers regulated by the FCA, and, alongside other criteria, enables members to apply for an individual charter.
For CISI members on Self-Declare CPD Scheme
If you are on the CISI Self-Declare CPD Scheme (10 hours of CPD) and have not yet self-declared your CPD, your CISI membership is at risk of lapsing at the end of your membership year.
The good news is that it takes less than 30 seconds to self-declare your 10 hours of CPD to meet your requirements.
