Courses, Practices and Procedures within the CPD accreditation
What is a CPD qualification?
CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. It refers to the process of tracking and documenting the skills, knowledge and experience that you gain both formally and informally as you work, beyond any initial training. It’s a record of what you experience, learn and then apply. Our CPD quality marks are protected by international copyright legislation. CPD submissions are assessed and accredited against the universally accepted structured checklist which The CPD Service has developed over the past 20+ years. The process takes an impartial and objective overview of structure and value to ensure full conformity to CPD guidelines
How we became CPD accredited.
Accredited CPD training means the learning activity has reached the required Continuing Professional Development standards and benchmarks. The learning value has been scrutinised to ensure integrity and quality. The CPD Certification Service provides recognised independent CPD accreditation compatible with global CPD requirements. We achieved all the standards required by the external verifier and CPD services.
Is the CPD Certification Service Recognised?
Established in 1996, The CPD Certification Service is the independent CPD accreditation centre working across all sectors, disciplines and further learning applications, Hundreds of thousands recognise our CPD Certified symbol as the qualitative benchmark that, not only reflects but also sets those standards.
What can you do with CPD points?
A CPD may be a requirement of membership of a professional body. It can help you to reflect, review and document your learning and to develop and update your professional knowledge and skills. It is also very useful to: provides an overview of your professional development to date
Every company or professional organisation, e,g Doctors, Nurses, Therapists, Beauty , Financial Planning, Construction or Regulatory organisation, Managers, Administrators, Data entry, and Shop floor workers, which has a compulsory minimum CPD requirements that you must attain each year will have a portal that you can upload and register your CPD learning and points with. The record of your CPD points is then stored and can be shared with or downloaded from your governing body, employer as required.
Employers are more frequently asking employees to complete CPD courses off their own back. The evidence of completed certified courses can and will be used in yearly reviews to help employers make decisions on promotions within your career.
Our CPD courses are not just about the acquisition of new knowledge from experts. Just as valuable sometimes is reflection on existing knowledge in order to share it, consolidate it, reorganise it and apply it more widely. Our courses all are written with this in mind. What is the point of learning if you can build on it.
The 11 Commandments Of Our CPD Courses.
- How can you tell our courses are genuine CPD accredited courses.
Always check that the course is registered with the CPD services Ltd, all our course are verified and you can check this by following this link. All genuine providers of CPD accredited will have a similar link, if they can not provide it, they are not genuine.
All genuine CPD courses will have not 1 but 2 certificates that you should ask to see. The first certificate is produced only for use by the course provider and contain a unique reference number on the bottom tight hand side. If your provider can not show you this certificate then do not be surprised to learn that your CPD points are worthless. The second certificate is the one you will receive once you have completed your course. This certificate will again have unique identifying features on it that will match up with information held on the CPD accreditation services database.
Note the Certificate number in the bottom Right hand side of the certificate.

Your time for learning is precious – All our courses are carefully timed and validated with the correct number of learnings hours you will need to complete it. Each hour in learning is awarded with a CPD point, so if we tell you that a course carries 30 CPD points then you know that you will need to allow 30 hours to complete the course.
