As you know, all protection advisers need to do a minimum of 15 hours CPD every year. While 15 hours in a year doesn’t sound like a lot, when you’re busy looking after your clients - finding the time for this can be difficult. That’s why we will be adding new CPD resources regularly to help you achieve this.
CPD is split into two areas:
Structured – this is an activity that gives stated learning outcomes which are designed to help you achieve a specific learning need. Examples of this type of CPD include formal training courses/webinars, conferences and professional exams.
Unstructured – this is classed as a learning activity that hasn’t specifically been designed to meet a development need, but has fulfilled a learning outcome. Examples of CPD could include events, reading industry papers and publications.
Both types of CPD count towards your 15 hours. For more about the different types of CPD, please visit the CII's CPD website.
