Continuing Professional Education - Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors

Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (UK) approached the definition of CPD by ways of explaining each word in turn. It is (as follows):

  • continuing, because learning never ceases, regardless of age or seniority;
  • professional, because it is focused on professional competence in a professional role; and
  • concerned with development, because its goal is to improve personal performance and enhance career progression, which arguably is much wider than just formal training courses.

    The royal eagle draws his vigorous young
