Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Courses

As professional practitioners we can never have the luxury of “standing still”, we are either moving forward or going backwards. If we do attempt to stand still, as our profession moves forward and progresses, then we are, in reality, going backwards. The process of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) effectively prevents this by enabling us to engage with the broader principles of lifelong learning. The CPD process helps us manage our own development on an ongoing basis.

Continuing Professional Development is primarily self directed, driven by you, not your employer. Informally it helps you focus on learning from experience, reflective learning and review. This can help you with the development of goals and objectives, and uncover gaps in your skills and capabilities. This can then lead to more formal approaches encompassing Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Courses. At ICHAS we provide a range of short courses designed to help fulfill some of your professional development needs. They will not only assist you in your professional development but can also contribute to demonstrating your professional standing, as well as contributing to your career development.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses are primarily designed for professionals who are already established in their respective fields and aim to enhance their knowledge, skills, and expertise. CPD courses provide opportunities for ongoing learning and development beyond initial professional qualifications. Here are some groups of professionals who often benefit from CPD courses:

  • Licensed professionals: CPD courses are commonly pursued by individuals who hold professional licenses or certifications, such as Counsellors, Psychotherapists, Psychologists, and other health care professionals.. These courses help professionals meet the requirements for maintaining their licenses and staying up-to-date with the latest advancements and regulations in their fields.
  • Health and medical professionals: CPD courses are crucial for healthcare practitioners, including doctors, dentists, nurses, psychologists, and therapists. These courses enable medical professionals to expand their knowledge, learn new techniques, stay updated with medical research, and maintain high standards of patient care.
  • Educators: CPD courses are valuable for teachers and educators at all levels, from early childhood education to higher education. These courses focus on adding new relevant skills and knowledge, and improving existing ones, ensuring continuous improvement in teaching and ancillary skills..

It’s worth noting that the specific requirements and expectations for CPD vary across professions and jurisdictions. Professionals should consult with their respective regulatory bodies or professional associations to determine the specific CPD requirements and recommended courses for their field.
