Accounting CPD Courses

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) allows you to make sure that you have the skills and knowledge to do your job as best as you can. While it can often be hard to find the time to develop your skills and build on your knowledge, having a requirement to do so makes that easier. And because of the widespread need for CPD, there are many different options to choose from. As an accountant, it is your responsibility to be aware of your CPD requirement and ensure that you are completing it each year. No matter which professional body you are a member of you will need to do some CPD, although the number of hours may differ, and some professional bodies require certain topics to be covered.

Which professional accounting CPD courses should I choose?

Which professional skills CPD course should I choose?

The great thing about CPD is that you can tailor it to yourself and your goals. By choosing topics that interest you and will aid your career growth, you can use it to your advantage rather than just learning because you ‘have to’. The accounting CPD courses you choose can cover a wide range of topics and so it is very important to consider your interests and what topics would be helpful to your own professional development. So for example you could attend training courses on financial reporting, industry updates, business training and/or the soft skills needed for leadership and management.

The more you enjoy the CPD that you’re doing, the more likely you are to complete your yearly requirements.

Some questions to consider when choosing your CPD training topics are:

  • Do you have any weaknesses you want to improve on?
  • Are there any new skills that would help your work?
  • What skills do you need for your career progression?
