Continuing Professional Development (CPD)


The purpose of continuing professional development (CPD) is to ensure that a professional remain up to date with the latest developments in corporate governance.  This is not only about maintaining your competence as CD(SA) or Cert.Dir.  but also about ensuring that you remain effective when fulfilling your roles and responsibilities as director.

CPD can be earned in the following 5 categories:

 

Both CD(SA) and Cert.Dir. are required to comply with the CPD requirements, as set out in the related Handbooks.

These requirements are to:

  • maintain membership as a fully paid up IoDSA member
  • ensure completion of a minimum of 30 CPD hours every year, reported to the IoDSA in the prescribed format no later than 31 March of the following year
  • subscribe to the CD(SA) or Cert.Dir. Code of Conduct respectively

How does the IoDSA help me comply with the CPD requirements?

IoDSA are allocated with CPD points and this presents as a complete CPD programme each year.  By participating in these events and activities, you will be in position to earn your CPD easily. One contribution to this that is coordinated specifically by the Director Certification team is the Director Mentoring Circles events, please see details below.

2020 Director Mentoring Circles

This is an interactive 2 hour session where CD(SA)s (the mentors) facilitated conversations with new and aspiring directors (Certified Directors or IoDSA members). 

Purpose & Format
The Director Mentoring Circles are aimed at offering aspiring directors and recognised Certified Directors the opportunity to interact with CD(SA)s through an interactive networking session that encourages meaningful engagement and dialogue. Chartered Directors (SA)® host a table of 5 – 8 Certified Directors or aspiring directors. As the host the CD(SA)® facilitates a conversation that will address challenges and concerns raised by the participants.

The session is opened by a short guest speaker presentation (20 minutes) about a current topic that could be included in the circle conversations. Participants rotate between different circles every 20 minutes for an opportunity to engage with different CD(SA)® members.

Alignment to the Director Competence Framework
Certified members earn 2 CPD points towards the 'Director Mentoring' category for participation in this event. Attendees are also intended to develop the personal and social competencies included in the IoDSA Director Competency Framework, namely:

·PC1: Act in a manner that demonstrates self-knowledge and self-awareness.
