Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

CPD helps ensure that CII qualified members have the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in a competitive market. It can help you:

  • Build public confidence and credibility
  • Achieve career goals by focusing on relevant training and development
  • Respond to change by continuously updating skills
  • Improve productivity and efficiency by planning action address acknowledged gaps in your knowledge and experience.

The CII's qualified member CPD scheme provides a practical framework for ensuring development is addressed in a structured way to meet your personal needs, the needs of your employer and the requirements of the CII as a Chartered professional body. The scheme is designed to ensure qualified members remain competent and up-to-date and to separate them, as a member of a profession, from the mass of insurance and financial services practitioners.

The scheme caters for all qualified members, irrespective of their specialism, discipline or geographical location.

In July 2012 the CII introduced an enhanced hours-based qualified member CPD scheme, demonstrating its commitment to providing innovative and comprehensive solutions to meet the needs of the profession.


To aid members with their CPD needs the CII delivers a vast programme of support through the Faculties, Knowledge Services and the local institutes (see these benefit sections for details).

This takes a variety of different forms including:

  • lectures
  • workshops
  • webinars
  • videos
  • e-books
  • podcasts; and
  • live debates.

The diversity of the offering enables the CII to support members' CPD requirements, wherever in the world they are, and whenever it is convenient for them.
