What is a CPD Course?
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is the means by which professionals maintain and enhance their knowledge and skills. The world is constantly moving at a very fast pace so undertaking CPD is essential to support a professional in his/her current role as well as helping them with career progression. CPD is all about upgrading knowledge, skills, and capabilities to remain effective and compliant.
A CPD course is an investment that you make in yourself. It’s a way of planning your development that links learning directly to practice. CPD can help you keep your skills and knowledge up to date and prepare you for greater responsibilities. It can boost your confidence, strengthen your professional credibility, and help you become more creative in tackling new challenges.
Is the SEMP Project Management Programme right for me?
Some project managers train specifically for a professional role in project management right from the start, whilst others progress through their organization in different roles, and at some point identify project management as a role they would like to take on. Sometimes it is a role that you fall into by accident or one that is thrust upon you; so practical experience is often gained before becoming certified.
If you are contemplating a career change then there are several things you should consider. Firstly, you must consider if you think you have the right sort of personality to become a project manager, for instance:
- Are you comfortable taking the lead role in a high-pressure situation?
- Have you got the ability to effectively manage resources on a large scale?
- Can you think on your feet and quickly react to change?
- Do you have good problem-solving skills?
- Do you have experience with finance to manage large budgets?
- Can you be honest, and say ‘No’ to staff and management when required?
- Can you be decisive when required, and accept responsibility for your decisions?
If you answered yes to most of these questions then a career in project management is definitely worth considering. As long as you’re proficient in most of the above, you can learn the remaining aspects through good additional training.
