CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. CPD supports the development of vocational skills through training. CPD is skills-based learning and does not confer a qualification. The CPD Certification Service is a recognised, independent accreditation service that approves courses so that they can offer a CPD Verified Certificate. Points are equivalent to the number of hours spent learning on a verified course. A CPD verified course allows you to carry those points to the total required by the regulatory body in your sector.
