New online CPD courses for CIMSPA members

CIMSPA is pleased to announce the launch of new online continuing professional development opportunities for qualifying CIMSPA members. The initiative is a partnership between CIMSPA and HRD Online, who are an Institute of Leadership and Management approved training provider.

Over 60 courses are available, covering a wide range of workplace and management skills, from highly specfic training on COSHH and health and safety, to self-improvement topics such as assertiveness and creativity.

All of the courses are positioned within the institute’s professional development framework, which is the first unified pathway for individual career development in the sport and physical activity sector.

Commenting on the new online CPD, Tara Dillon, CIMSPA chief executive said, “A commitment to continuing professional development is a key part of being a member of the sector’s chartered professional body, and CIMSPA is very happy to be facilitating this via these new courses from our partner HRD Online.”

This new member benefit represents the latest milestone in CIMSPA’s transformation programme, as it takes on the leadership role it has been asked to by the wider sport and physical activity sector.

What our members say about the training

I found the CIMSPA courses very informative, interactive, and relevant to my learning needs in the health and fitness industry. Studying the courses online was more convenient for me and allowed me to learn at my own pace. I would recommend these courses to any fitness professional looking to further their knowledge and skills base in the industry.

Why we use them

When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. Where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example, your computer or mobile phone. These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.

These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:

  • recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested
  • measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there’s enough capacity to ensure they are fast
  • analysing anonymised data to help us understand how people interact with our website so we can make them better
