The EPAA CPD scheme is not mandatory for our members, but we encourage as many EPAA members as possible to take part and perhaps work towards becoming a practitioner of the EA/PA profession?! Prove your worth and credibility to employers across the UK.
EPAA’s CPD scheme works on a credit basis and includes a variety of activities, for which you can achieve credits towards your annual record from; attending conferences and courses, to listening to podcasts and reading books.
What is Continued Professional Development (CPD)?
We know a great many EA/PA professionals have never taken part in a CPD scheme and others would have, perhaps via other membership bodies or indeed your employer.
CPD quite simply put, is a process or activity that provides added value to the capability of the individual member through an increase in professional knowledge, skills and personal qualities. EPAA’s scheme will assist and support you in keeping your records current and relevant. Our help won’t stop there, as we will help you to put together a career plan for your learning and development, which will in turn support you in moving your career to the next stage.
In today’s extremely fast paced business environments, we believe our programme provides real credibility in your status as an EA/PA professional and not only this, to employers across the UK too. In addition, it allows you to demonstrate your competence levels at every level and stage of your EA/PA career.
Work towards Practitioner status
All levels of our membership are entitled to join the scheme. However, both our ‘FEPAA’ and ‘MEPAA’ level members can obtain ‘practitioner’ status after two years continuous CPD. Therefore, will be able to use the letters ‘FEPAA Practitioner’ or ‘MEPAA Practitioner’ after their names. To learn more please login to the members area of our website.
