Airmic promotes and supports the planning, undertaking and subsequent recording, of Continuous Professional Development (CPD).
Airmic activities offer a range of opportunities to undertake structured1 and unstructured2 CPD designed to help professionals build confidence and credibility, adapt to change through continuous skill development, increase productivity, and focus on relevant training and development to support career goals and address gaps in experience, skills and knowledge.
Subject to the CPD scheme an individual belongs to, many Airmic activities are eligible for CPD hours and points, and we would recommend hours are logged accordingly to present as CPD evidence should it be needed to. Wherever possible, Airmic will highlight the potential CPD hours / points available against its relevant activities.
