External CPD policy

Policy date: November 2016

CIMSPA may, on a case-by-case basis, be able to recognise CPD activities which have been provided by organisations who are not yet CIMSPA partners.


  • CPD recognised can ONLY be developmental. This process will not award “endorsed” CPD points. For more information on this distinction, go HERE
  • Only one CPD activity can be added in each recognition submission. Repeat the form if you have more to submit
  • It is in your interest to provide evidence where possible (e.g. certificates)

Your submission will be considered by the CIMSPA registrar and you will be notified if your submission has been successful. Successful submissions will be recorded on a member’s record by CIMSPA.


IMPORTANT: Your future CPD

As our UK-wide CPD offer deepens and widens, we will give increasing priority to CPD only delivered by official CIMSPA skills development partners. We would strongly encourage you to use CIMSPA-recognised CPD options available at the links below to chart your professional development going forwards.
