All SQPs reading this will know that doing CPD is a requirement to maintain the SQP status. A small number didn’t get enough points in the last CPD period, and of those a number are finding the “CPD exam” challenging – and it’s not cheap, either. We would rather no-one had to take that exam because everyone met the minimum targets, so please make sure that isn’t you when we get to the summer of 2017.
Additionally, all SQPs (who qualify by the end of 2016) must take a particular module, a reminder of SQPs’ legal and professional duties, by the end of June 2017. Even if you have hundreds of points, you must also have this module. At the time of writing, almost 4500 of you have done so, but that leaves about 2000 who haven’t.

With SQPs, rightly, always the target of scrutiny to make sure the role is being carried out appropriately and professionally, it is a good opportunity to be reminded of the duties and responsibilities of the job. Even a few somewhat reluctant attendees have told us afterwards that it was a worthwhile refresher.
So why not get it sorted now?
