RIVER CPD is a professional development and career planning tool offered free by PRINZ to members. Participants design their own unique learning and development plan which enables them to demonstrate they are up-to-date with knowledge and practice. At the end of each year, successful participants receive a practicing certificate.
RIVER CPD sits alongside the PRINZ Continuing Professional Development programme, where credits are accumulated for PRINZ activity. RIVER CPD also awards credits for any verified professional development undertaken outside of PRINZ.
RIVER CPD is suitable for practitioners of any age and at any career stage. Associate, Fellow and Life members may register for RIVER CPD.

You can add new credits
to your profile at any time by selecting 'CPD' from
the left-hand side menu in your dashboard and click 'New CPD Record'. Please ensure you always refer to our Credits Guide.
