By doing Continuing Professional Development (CPD), ACCA members can keep up to date with the latest skills and knowledge required of professional accountants in today’s dynamic business world, giving themselves that competitive edge.
To ensure all our ACCA members are high-performing and consistently achieving, we’ve developed a flexible CPD requirement that’s easy to fit around the busy schedules of finance professionals.
With over 187,000 members from all around the world, we recognise that our membership is extremely diverse and that different members will have different circumstances and commitments, so we offer four different CPD routes:
No matter which route they’re following, all members are required to complete an annual CPD declaration by 1 January each year and need to keep evidence of their CPD.
Any learning activity can be claimed as CPD as long as members can prove it was relevant and can be applied in their day-to-day role.
