Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a way for professional practitioners to enhance their knowledge and skills throughout their working lives and aims to ensure that practitioners maintain and enhance the knowledge and skills needed to provide a professional service to their clients, customers and the community. CPD involves documenting the skills, knowledge and experience that you gain, both formally and informally as you work, beyond any initial training. It is a record of what you experience, learn and then apply. All Full Members are asked to submit CPD on a regular basis (usually once per year) in order to show that they have remained active in their personal investment and that their knowledge and experience in the field of sacred plant medicine continue to progress.

CPD incorporates countless self-improvement activities, some examples are listed below:

- Attending a relevant workshop, ceremony or conference
- Appropriate research
- Appropriate further training
- Attending FSPM AGM or other relevant meetings
- Writing a book, recording or filming
