Revium builds fit-for-purpose, web based CPD systems to assist practitioners in developing their professional and personal expertise. Our online CPD systems increase member engagement while reducing the administration effort required to manage a CPD program.

What is CPD?

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a way of improving and broadening knowledge, competencies and skills, both professionally and personally. It is an ongoing process of reflection and action in an ever changing world. Development can be achieved in many ways, for example through formal training, courses, conferences or informal learning opportunities during practice.

CPD obligations are common to many professions. They are mostly managed by member based associations and colleges and are often a requirement to obtain or maintain accreditation.
