Peoplecert announces its Continuing Professional Development programme

As businesses and technologies evolve, the demand for new skills is ever present in a competitive global job market and lifelong learning is essential for success. That is why PeopleCert announces the Continuing Professional Development Programme.

The Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Programme is designed to help candidates stay ahead in the competitive labour market. It aims to help candidates thrive in their chosen discipline and keep them up-to-date with the skills and best practices for their professional development.

Part of this programme means that starting from 2023, all Global Best Practice certifications will need to be renewed after three years. This way PeopleCert can assist candidates in their lifelong journey and inspire them to keep on developing their professional skills.

All certifications will have to be renewed every three years and there will be three main renewal paths available:

  1. Retake the same exam: you can renew your certification by retaking the original exam before the renewal date.
  2. Take further courses and certifications: you can renew your certifications by attending another course and taking another exam, within the same product suite, before the renewal date.
  3. Collect and log CPD points (from march 2023): you can renew and keep your certification by collecting and logging so-called CPD (continuing professional development) points. More information will be provided soon.

Renewing a certification for current certification holders

If you are already certified in one of the Best Practices that PeopleCert offers, you will have to follow one of the above renewal paths in order to keep your certification. This means that:

  • If certified before June 2020: candidates will have until 1 July 2023 to renew their certification, regardless of their original award date.
  • If certified after June 2020: candidates will have to renew their certification(s) within 3 years of the original award date.

The Continuing Professional Development programme will be for all global best practice certification groups which include:
