CPD Bites from accountingcpd

Register now to help you keep up-to-date and develop your skills.

Actively engaging in Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is an essential part of being a public finance professional. It helps you to maintain and build on your technical skills, keep up to date on legislative and regulatory changes and develop your management and leadership skills.

To make it as easy as possible to maintain your CPD hours, we have partnered with award-winning accountingcpd, a leading provider of online CPD for accountants.

All CIPFA members and students are now invited to register with accountingcpd to gain access to their CPD Bites service, a weekly email containing a bite-sized, 15 minute CPD session.

Each CPD Bites session will cover a specific topic, and many will have been developed with input from CIPFA's own subject matter experts. They are fully tracked, giving you a clear record of the CPD hours you complete.

In addition to the weekly email, you will have access to the entire CPD Bites back catalogue, plus 10% off their range of online training courses.
