Chartered Practitioner scheme
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) enables CIPR members to maintain, improve and broaden their knowledge and skills and develop the personal qualities required for their PR careers.
The CPD year runs from 1 January to 31 December each year. Activities completed since 1 January 2013 can be recorded retrospectively to your account until 31 December 2013.
Each year you will need to record 60 points of CPD activity by signing in to the CIPR website and accessing the online CPD system. You record activity to your CPD account by selecting from predefined activities in our database or by creating your own self-defined activities, and evaluating their effectiveness.
