The Fire Industry Association (FIA) is now a Corporate Affiliate member of the CPD (Continuing Professional Development) Institute and is able to award its own CPD Points.
Events that can be awarded CPD points include training courses, workshops and seminars, successful completion of an accredited programme of study, private study where the learning outcomes can be demonstrated, meetings and working groups or through helping others with their personal development.
FIA Training Manager, Ian Gurling, said, We are very pleased to be a part of the Institute of CPD and to demonstrate our commitment to the ongoing learning and development process. CPD is a required element of membership to many professional bodies and the hours awarded are a valuable gauge of the amount of personal development that an individual undertakes, which helps to raise the professional standard in our industry."
The CPD Institute is part of the Continuing Professional Development Foundation, an educational charitable trust providing high-quality and broad-ranging CPD since 1981. The Institute serves the public interest by helping to raise the effectiveness of professionals through the promotion of CPD as an important and integral element of lifelong learning.
