What is CPD?

'The proactive maintenance and extension of professional knowledge, skills and personal qualities required to drive responsible practice throughout working life.'

CPD is about improving skills and knowledge, ensuring you remain current and effective as a marketing professional. It’s relevant throughout your career – whether you are new to marketing or an experienced professional wishing to keep abreast of the latest trends and techniques.

Professional development at CIM

Our Chartered CPD Programme is open to all members and provides a focused and logical way for you to keep learning as your career progresses. It benchmarks your skills against our Professional Marketing Competencies framework, enables you to identify any gaps in your knowledge and directs you to a range of activities to help you overcome them.

Simply record all the learning and development activities that you undertake over the membership year; whether completed with us, through other organisations, or even activities you’ve done on your own; then complete a short reflection on each one to highlight its impact on your practice. Once you've completed your CPD year you'll receive a physical CPD certificate as tangible proof of your commitment to ongoing development. It proves to current and potential employers that you are serious about maintaining your knowledge and skills in marketing. Your CPD journey can lead to achieving Chartered Marketer status – the mark of an up-to-date, experienced and qualified marketing professional.
