Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a fundamental building block in becoming a health and safety professional and in maintaining your knowledge to ensure the advice you are giving is the best that it can be. Often, the concept of recording professional development is foreign, and this, in conjunction with a lack of knowledge around how to record, can create a barrier to entering the CPD process and progressing through the grading pathway.
Please join us for an informative webinar that will aim to remove the stigma associated with CPD and give you the necessary information to get cracking with logging your development and growing as a professional.
Date: Thursday 16 May 2019 Time: 7.00pm - 7.45pm (New Zealand Time) Format: Webinar Format - Login details will be emailed to registered attendees 1-2 days prior to the webinar. Cost:
SIA Members $20.00
Corporate supporter $20.00
