These points are often required by professional organizations and regulatory bodies to maintain your membership or certification. By completing CPD activities, such as taking courses, you can gain new skills, knowledge, and expertise that can help you perform your job duties more effectively and efficiently. Earning CPD points also shows that you are committed to staying current and engaged in your field, and can be used as evidence of ongoing learning when seeking promotions or new job opportunities. Overall, CPD points are an important tool for helping professionals maintain their competence and provide high-quality services.
Why Evening Sessions
Tacitskills is a company that caters to busy professionals by offering live interactive courses that take place in the evenings between 19:00 and 22:00. This allows professionals to continue working on important projects during the day and complete the course in the evenings. To make the most of their time, the courses are split into 3 hour sessions per evening, rather than requiring professionals to take time off work to attend full-day training sessions. Tacitskills understands that times can be tough and is committed to accommodating professionals by working around their schedules.
