My CPD provides FPA members with a wide range of CPD content in the one convenient place.

The FPA has launched My CPD, allowing planners to access a wide range of FPA and FASEA accredited CPD content and track their CPD hours, all in the one convenient place.

My CPD includes a number of benefits, including:

CPD finder

Members can search an extensive list of CPD options from suppliers and the FPA, including articles, webinars, courses, quizzes and workshops. Search by CPD area, number of hours and delivery format. The FPA aims to have 4,000 hours of CPD content available, from over 100 suppliers, by the end of the year.

CPD tracker

Track and measure your CPD in one place to ensure you fulfil all your personal CPD requirements, including FPA, TPB and FASEA. Members can access the starter version of the tracker now, with the full version available by the end of 2019, which will allow you to export a copy of your CPD records, search your training history and schedule your future CPD activities.   

Accessing My CPD

My CPD is available on the FPA’s online learning hub – FPA Learn– which brings together all your FPA education and professional development needs, including FPA Return to Learn, with tools and resources to navigate the new education and professional standards for planners. My CPD is free of charge to FPA members.

“We have set out to build a convenient and easy to use solution for our members that provides them with the largest aggregation of FPA and FASEA accredited CPD options,” says FPA CEO Dante De Gori CFP®. “My CPD is set to become a one-stop shop for accessing nearly 4,000 accredited CPD hours from a range of key partners and the FPA. No other platform will offer this diversity – it’s a game changer!”
