External CPD Points
CPD points can also be gained by attending courses which are organised by providers other than the PGA, as long as these courses are from a recognised training provider, and are in a relevant subject area. Please below a list of accredited CPD Points providers so far.
Members can apply for points to be allocated following attendance at an external course, and this application will be assessed on the basis of content and duration of the event. A photocopy of the course certificate needs to be submitted for assessment- if the certificate does not include details of the training provider, date and duration (days/hours) of the event, then evidence of this must also be provided- a copy of the agenda or programme for the event will usually include this information. You will also need to complete and attach the External CPD application form which is found at the bottom of this page.
A letter from the training provider will also be accepted as evidence of attendance, provided that this letter contains the information specified above and is on the letterhead of the training provider.
