Standards for Accreditation and Certification

Planning Guide | Standards Checklist

UBC CPD Planning Guide

Our new UBC CPD Planning Guide was launched last summer (June 2018) to coincide with the changes resulting from the new National Standard which also was launched last year by the Royal College and CFPC together. It describes all of the accreditation and certification standards currently required to be met for successful accreditation and/or certification of a CPD activity. Includes checklist, signature pages, and support documentation.
