CIPFA Members select their CPD year. The CPD year can be based on a calendar, financial or appraisal year eg January to December, April to March and September to August.
CIPFA Members are required to complete at least 20 hours of verifiable CPD activities over a 12 month period.
Members are also expected to reflect on the learning they have done and the outputs achieved.
One of the many ways to contribute to your learning and development is through structured training. CIPFA offers a range of qualifications, short courses and introductory workshops that are ideal for keeping your skills and knowledge up-to-date. We also provide access to a wealth of online information and resources.
Standard of Professional Practice (SoPP) for CPD
The SoPP has been approved by the CIPFA Council. This document outlines the CPD requirements and what members need to do to participate in the CPD scheme.
