CE/CPD Points

Continuing Education (CE)/Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points are required by many professions or professional body memberships in order to remain fully qualified in a respective career. CE/CPD shows a clear commitment to self-development and professionalism.

Many of our courses are approved to carry CE/CPD points to support people on these programs. You will find the CPD logo on the course description pages, where these apply.


All courses we produce are annually assessed and accredited by the International Council for Online Educational Standards ( This third-party assessment of our courses rigorously tests the content, design and integrity of each course to ensure the highest standards for online education are being achieved.
