CPD Central OnlineCPD Central is the online CPD resource for technical staff and managers across all sectors, which enhances the standards of professionalism. CPD Central simplifies recording and reflection, whilst allowing connectivity and direction from supervisors to tie in key objectives that align to both work and non-work-based activities. CPD recording has never been so easy. The software platform has been developed by the NTDC (National Technician Development Centre) in collaboration with the IST.

Why is CPD important?

CPD helps individuals to manage their own development on an ongoing basis. Recognition of staff using CPD can help aid business models by introducing new opportunities, as well as retaining key skills. CPD can:

  Help develop and update professional knowledge
○  Uncover skills gaps
  Identify training needs
  Recognise an individual’s achievements

Why should your teams use CPD Central?

For individual technicians, CPD Central enables simple and accurate recording of activities, anytime, anywhere, and allows them to reflect on their skills and training needs.

CPD Central has a key role in supporting technical career development; allowing individuals and teams to recognise current skills and abilities, as well as identify skills gaps which can be addressed by targeted training and development opportunities.
