Continuing Professional Development (CPD) ensures that those who hold APMP certification demonstrate ongoing commitment to professional growth and development, a criterion of all professional organisations.
To maintain certification levels individuals are required to participate in a CPD programme, earning Continuing Education Unit (CEU) credits. CEUs can be gained by certified individuals through obtaining and developing a wide range of knowledge, skills and experience, which are not normally acquired during initial training or routine work and which together develop and maintain competence to practice.
For example, CEUs are gained by attending (or indeed presenting at) APMP UK chapter meetings and the annual conference or through contributing to the success of APMP UK in any other recognised and valued manner.
