CPD (Continuing Personal and Professional Development ) is a term used to describe the undertaking of a structured and planned approach to post-qualification further learning throughout the career path. It is a personal commitment and individuals can determine what subjects and areas they wish to investigate. Most professionals are expected to undertake a minimum of 35-40 hours CPD each year.
BASPCAN are proud to be an accredited provider of CPD and a member of the CPD Accreditation Service. The symbols are recognised as marks of commitment and quality. It confirms BASPCAN's commitment to the enhancement of skills and knowledge
All our national events and some branch events are assessed for accreditation and will then show the certified symbol on the event programme. BASPCAN Conference attendance will automatically qualify the delegate to a self credit of the CPD hours for attendance. A certificate is issued to every delegate to confirm this.
