RIVER CPD is a free professional development and career planning tool for PRINZ 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 runs from January - December annually. Please note you can submit your plan at any stage between January to November.
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.
