IFIS professional development (CPD) is the continuing professional development scheme for IFIS members. It supports you in your career by helping you identify your future learning needs.

CPD is also a compulsory part of maintaining your membership.

How CPD works

Unlike other schemes you may be familiar with, IFIS doesn’t prescribe specific activities or number of units or hours. Instead IFIS policy gives you the freedom to choose how you are going to develop so that you only complete activities that are directly relevant to your role and to your individual development needs.

IFIS CPD, and the way you have to do it, is much better than clocking up hours, as some of the other professional bodies want you to do. With IFIS, you decide where you need to improve, do it, and then assess yourself.’
