Continuing Professional Development for Instructors
The Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programme for Ladder Association Instructors was launched at this year’s Annual Members’ Meeting, on the 5 November 2010.
What is CPD?
CPD is an ongoing process of personal growth to enhance capability and realise full potential as an instructor. CPD opportunities provide a means whereby you can keep abreast of changes in the industry, broaden your skills and be more effective in your work.
Some of the benefits of CPD are as follows:
- Allows you to build confidence and credibility as an instructor
- Cope positively with change by constantly updating your skill set.
- Be more productive and efficient by reflecting on your learning and highlighting gaps in your knowledge and experience.
- Achieve your career goals by focusing on your training and development.
