CPD resources and ideas for start-ups
Mark Lee explores the wide range of options, resources and practical considerations for start-up practices looking to arrange their own technical CPD.
This is the second of three articles exploring CPD-related issues for start-up practices and is a natural follow-up to the first article in this series which explored the questions “what does CPD really mean?”, “what counts as CPD?” and “which approach do you prefer?”
The third and final article in this series will focus on the personal and business development side of CPD.
In terms of technical resources let’s start by expanding on the ICAEW’s summary list of activities that can constitute CPD. The important question in each case is whether your professional knowledge and abilities have been enhanced. If they have not then the activity doesn’t count as CPD.
