Our approach to CPD is designed to help you maintain and develop the knowledge and skills you need to succeed in today’s dynamic and demanding business environment.

Who completes CPD?

If you’re active in the workplace, you should complete CPD on an annual basis. 

Just joined? Please ensure that you’re participating in our CPD programme from 1st January after you became a member. 

You don’t have to complete CPD if you’re on our retired register.

CPD waiver

You may be eligible for a CPD waiver if your personal circumstances prevent you from participating fully in CPD.

Support and advice

We’re here to support you every step of the way. If you’re worried about any aspect of CPD, try our interactive CPD i-guide. It’s got answers to all the most commonly asked questions. Also, look out for CPD Direct (our regular member-only e-zine), which is filled with useful CPD ideas and tips.

Professional ethics lies at the heart of our CPD requirement. Our approach also fully complies with the CPD standard required by the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC), of which ACCA is a member.
