CPD anytime, anywhere

Want to earn continuing professional development (CPD) units in your pyjamas from home, or from your desk between meetings?

Now you can, thanks to the LIV’s expanded suite of online CPD products.

LIV Professional Development general manager Julie McCormack said LIV members had embraced the opportunity to log on and access CPD units online since the system was launched earlier this year.

“We have had a significant uptake, far greater than we expected,” she said.

Six online programs have been offered in the professional skills arena, including an introduction to corporate governance, effective meetings and the skills company directors need.

“They range in degrees of difficulty from quite basic and appropriate for a fairly new practitioner to fairly sophisticated and challenging for the more experienced practitioner,” Ms McCormack said.

The programs are designed to allow users to log in and out of the system as time permits, without losing their place. The units are each of two hours duration, which equates to two CPD units.

“The technology is very simple and the system is easy to use for those with basic computer skills,” Ms McCormack added.

“Practitioners can do it in chunks, they don’t have to sit at their computer for two hours straight – they can come and go.”

Each unit includes a short test to ensure participants have understood the material before an electronic certificate of completion is forwarded. There is also an email contact for those who need help.

Ms McCormack said new units would be made available on the website.

“Every two months we will be adding more modules to the suite on offer.”

These will encompass a wide selection of compliance and substantive law programs.

The LIV has also launched a CPD audio products range, including podcast recordings of previous LIV CPD activities. Each has an accompanying paper available for purchase.

“This is another way of enabling people to do their CPD in their own time or when it is convenient,” Ms McCormack said.

“We really want to make the program as flexible and accessible as possible.”
