Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a common term shared by many professions. It is the way by which professionals maintain and update their knowledge and skills after qualification. Once a BIID Associate has completed the BIID Professional Pathway and become a BIID Member they are required to undertake an annual CPD requirement to remain a Member.

A commitment to CPD helps to ensure that BIID Members are keeping up to date with the latest developments in a rapidly changing industry. It provides an opportunity to update personal and professional skills, a platform to engage with experts in the industry and a forum for the exchange ideas and best practice.

The Institute and its approved CPD Providers offer an ongoing calendar of CPD events that can be viewed here. Members can also accrue CPD through seminars, lectures, project tours, factory visits, exhibitions, trade shows, webinars, online learning, mentoring and authoring books and articles.
