FIPI Continuous Professional Development Program

What is CPD?

The Continuous Professional Development (CPD) Program is designed to enable
members to successfully develop their career as an Image Professional within FIPI.

The goal is to help members develop their skills, knowledge and experience as image professionals, and reassure clients that FIPI members provide a level of quality and professional service worth investing in.

This program aims to encourage members to be active, lifelong learners, taking responsibility for their own personal development within our supportive, professional community. CPD points can be earned by completing a variety of educational and learning activities, maintaining your professional practice, and engaging in the FIPI community. We encourage members to complete activities that cover all of these areas.

Who is CPD for?

CPD applies to all members, except retired members. Initially we are inviting all members to voluntarily participate in the CPD program, with the view to making it a requirement for FIPI membership in due course.
