I’m proud to have completed the Institute of Translation and Interpreting annual Continuing Professional Development programme for this year. It’s been a challenge, but I made the choice to focus on my professional development, and to invest in my career and knowledge
CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and is the term used to describe the learning activities certified translators and other professionals engage in to develop and enhance their abilities.
CPD combines different methodologies to learning, such as training workshops, conferences and seminars, lectures organised by universities, e-learning programs.
Engaging in Continuing Professional Development ensures that both academic and practical qualifications do not become out-dated or obsolete; The ITI Code of Professional Conduct requires ITI Members to undertake CPD, as appropriate.
I believe that my commitment to CPD is beneficial to my clients because they know that I am a committed professional who is constantly maintaining and enhancing expertise.
