What counts towards CPD?

There are two types of CPD study:

  • Structured – Focused on measurable objectives through study. This might include taking part in BCI seminars, attending conferences, or undertaking BC related training courses. Self-directed study could be writing BC related articles, training on BC related topics, or mentoring for us.
  • Unstructured – This covers any informal learning or self-study taken on around your career. This could include reading up on BC, attending training courses or studying for certifications (even non-BC ones).
