Broaden your horizons, open new doors and boost your career.

What does CPD mean?

In short: learning. CPD is any training that improves and broadens your knowledge, skills and ability to do your job.

Remember, you’re responsible for keeping a record of all CPD, and you may need to show this to become a member of CIEH – so don’t let that hard work go to waste.

What’s in it for me?

  • Learn new skills. It sounds obvious but new skills and knowledge are the best way to progress your career.
  • Employability. If your knowledge is strong and up-to-date, you’ll have a competitive edge with potential clients. CPD also demonstrates that you take an active interest in self-improvement, which makes you a much more attractive prospective employee.
  • Self-confidence. Being more confident in your abilities can open up lots of new work opportunities. It can also boost your performance and enjoyment of your current job.

Do I need CPD?

All our members, with the exception of student, Affiliate and retired members, are required to accrue a certain number of CPD hours. It’s part of the quality guarantee that comes with CIEH membership.

We offer a whole range of events that count towards your CPD, so check out our events page to find something that suits you.
