The Workshops are CPD Accredited – what does this mean and how does this work? CPD UK is our event partner and has accredited all of our training workshops. CPD stands for continuing professional development. People are free to attend each of the workshops and will get scanned in and out of each session. As each of the attendees are recorded, CPD UK will issue (within 30 working days) a PDF certification which certifies the attendees training for that session. Each session equates to a single CPD point which can be added to one’s portfolio. This is an internationally recognised accreditation.
