How Important is CPD to you?


Hi everyone, 

Out of interest, how important is maintaining your Training/L&D knowledge and skills to you?  Would you say it's:

- Very Important

- A little Important

- Neither Important or Unimportant

- Not very Important

I'd really like to hear your views!  :D

Thanks in advance!

    Just wanted to say thank you to those who have replied. I appreciate it.  And your responses confirmed my own view – that people in L&D take their own learning and development seriously. 

    Thanks again!

    Hello, the capture of CPD has always been important and having the flexibility to add any extra curricular activities to your training record is always important. Which is why we have a module dedicated to exactly that on our LMS.
