CPD Scheme

ACOI has a formal Continuous Professional Development (CPD) scheme for those members who have passed its exams and opted to become LCOI’s. The purpose of formal CPD is to ensure that members keep their qualification(s) current and that those who qualified in the past are as knowledgeable as those qualifying today.


To Members

There can be no doubt that the principal beneficiary of CPD participation is our members. Participation should ultimately help members in their career, both personally and professionally. CPD helps to:

  • update skills and knowledge on existing and new areas of regulation, law and business practice
  • build employer trust and confidence
  • expand and hone technical and professional skills
  • develop the softer and more subtle non-technical skills required to undertake the role of Compliance Officer
  • build self-confidence and conviction
  • enable members to remain competitive in the employment market
  • raise members’ personal profile through networking and make them more attractive to their existing and/or future employers
  • broaden members’ views and perspectives
