Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

Stay up-to-date and get more from your career


In line with IFAC requirements, our members have a commitment to undertake annual continuing professional development (CPD) activities relevant to their career.

This means they remain up-to-date with new and amended accounting and reporting frameworks, regulations and best practice. CPD activities also aim to build or refresh personal effectiveness in areas such as business management, communication and ethics, which increasingly impact on the role of accountants and business leaders in practice and industry.
