At the beginning of the current CPD cycle, we shared some tips, questions and tools you can use at each stage of your CPD training process. As we approach the end of the year and the halfway mark of the current CPD cycle, it is important to use these next couple of weeks to check if you are on track with your CPD training and if not, to use this time to get back on course and prepare for the second half of the CPD cycle and the year ahead.
