APPROVED PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT COURSES

All courses that attract CPD credit must be approved by the Council.  A list of approved courses can be found elsewhere on this website. 

Pre-approved Course Providers

Some providers and courses have been pre-approved, so you do not need to seek further approval for these courses.  You may apply to have other courses added to the list.  Credits are based on the time spent on the course excluding time spent on registration, tea breaks and lunch and dinner breaks.  The pre-approved providers and courses are listed immediately below.  Some of the individual courses are listed in the main body of approved CPD.  As always, you need proof of attendance to claim the credits.
