Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Courses Online

Continuing Professional Development – Why Do I Need It?

Continuing Professional Development is important if you want to stand out from other applicants at a job interview or would like better recognition and promotion in your current job. CPD helps you to remain relevant in your industry and of value to an employer. Professional Development helps you climb the ladder of success, increase your areas of expertise and earn more money for yourself and your family. It could even be the difference between employment and unemployment as you grow older.  Undertaking a CPD course empowers people to improve their situation and status in life and that is why we all need professional development, irrespective of what type of work or career we are in or hope to have.  CPD is a win-win for both the individual and organisation and should continue throughout your working career.  
 
ADL distance learning online CPD courses come in all shapes and sizes. These include our 20 hour short courses, our own E-books written specifically to compliment our courses, our 100 hour modular courses and also higher qualifications. Anyone of these forms of learning can only add to your professional development. 

Get a CPD Qualification:The qualification you will acquire through ADL will help you become more aware of industry opportunities available, that you may have overlooked before starting out on your professional development journey. If you work on a farm or would like to have a skill that is in great demand to offer potential employers, then Agronomy might be the course for you. If you're thinking ahead to a career change in later life and have always wanted to live by the sea, then an online course in Bed and Breakfast Management, taken part-time in the evenings and at weekends, could help you to realise your dream.

Already working and need Professional Development in order to get on? You may be a Tour Guide and want to diversify into something new. If so, you can take advantage in a growth area of tourism with the help of our Ecotourism Tour Guide course. Alternatively, if you organise holidays for a living, then Ecotour Management would be a valuable addition to your CV. Being up to date and knowing what changes are taking place within your own industry is essential to your job survival. The pace of business and life in general, is changing at an ever increasing speed and so it is important to stay abreast of these changes. If you’re up-to-date (only a Professional development course can do this) you can play a vital role in assisting your employer with their strategic decision-making.   

Get a Career with a Professional Development course: You have marketable attributes to offer and the desire to get on, but you don't have the diversity of skills employers are looking for. Is this you? You could be sixteen or sixty, under qualified with little or no experience, or over qualified with experience in the wrong fields. This is where an online CPD course from ADL can help you bridge the gap between what you know and what you need to know. For example, a young learner can complete our online course in Fitness Risk Management, to help them forge a career in the fitness industry, or an older person who has worked in middle management and been made redundant, could find the addition of an online Advanced Technical Writing course helpful in their quest for work.

Other advantages of CPD: Since our courses are compatible with industry –you are able to develop your own unique network of contacts. Through attending conferences, industry workshops, and professional meetings you can develop relationships and career opportunities which benefit not only your current job but future employment.
