In our quest to continuously enhance the value of service provided to our members and clients, the Training Academy has successfully applied for CPD validation for various courses on offer.

To ensure that Registered Persons keep abreast with legislation, innovation and technology, Registration Councils expect that they attend various recognised and accredited interventions to acquire CPD points and credits.

Continuing professional development is important because it ensures that you continue to be relevant and competent in your profession. It is an ongoing process and continues throughout one’s career.

CPD ensures that you maintain and enhance the knowledge and skills required to deliver a professional service to your clients
