Welcome to Continuing Professional Education
Continuing Professional Education (CPE) is ongoing training that is required in order to remain certified as a professional in certain fields.
Continuing Professional Education may be critical whether you are entering into a new profession or maintaining your present profession. CPE ensures your capabilities keep pace with the current standards of others in the same field – that your knowledge and skills stay relevant and up-to-date. If you hold a credential such as a degree, license or industry certification you may be required to take courses that fulfill the CPE obligation of a practicing professional.
CPE courses can help you:
- Improve your professional competence.
- Demonstrate that you have made efforts to maintain your competence.
- Show that you comply with professional body regulations and accreditation.
- Demonstrate your professional standing to clients and employers.
