Continuous Professional Development... Continues!
The Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons define CPD as:
The systematic maintenance, improvement and broadening of knowledge and skills, and the development of personal qualities necessary for the execution of professional and technical duties throughout the member’s working life’ RCVS 2006
The reason CPD is so important in this industry is that dog training and behaviour is always evolving, and in order to stay current, there is a need to continually increase your skill set and knowledge base; it represents a growth mindset, and recognition of the fact there will always be more to learn. CPD is also a measurable method of showing fellow professionals, clients and members of the public how seriously I take my job.
