Continuous Professional Development (CPD)  

Continuous Professional Development (CPD) is a major factor when carving out a career in compliance, particularly when taking in to account the ever-changing regulatory environment with new and emerging legislation constantly on the agenda. The Compliance Institute of Ireland is the leading provider of CPD events for compliance professionals in Ireland. Last year, over 4,000 professionals working in the compliance, risk, regulation, and finance sectors attended the Compliance Institute's CPD events which covered over 70 CPD hours. 


What is CPD?

CPD is any process or activity of a planned nature, that provides added value to the capability of the professional through the increase in knowledge skills and personal qualities necessary for the execution of professional and technical duties, often termed competence. It is a life-long tool that benefits the professional, client, employer, professional association and society and is particularly relevant during periods of rapid technological and occupational change.
