The Cuffelinks Continuing Professional Development Programme

Cuffelinks supports the need for industry professionals to continue to develop their skills, and the CPD programme helps maintain the currency of knowledge and expand ability. CPD should not be considered a compliance obligation, but a way to grow and perform better.

The Cuffelinks CPD Programme is for professionals who have CPD obligations, plus any financial markets participants who must complete a Training Register to show they have maintained their knowledge and skills.

Each edition of the Cuffelinks Newsletter will be accompanied by a short quiz, and the CPD Certificate should be stored in your personal Professional Development Record. Please note that while the results will be emailed to you, until later development, we do not have a record system you can access to see your previous results.

The CPD Programme allows subscribers to earn hours at their own pace and when it suits them, and is complimentary to Cuffelinks readers due to the support of our Sponsors.

The Financial Planning Association (FPA) is an alliance partner of Cuffelinks. Under the CPD requirements for members of the FPA, CFP Professionals must accumulate at least 120 CPD points over three years (90 points for non-CFP Financial Planners). The Cuffelinks CPD Programme is Accredited by an Authorised FPA CPD Assessor which means there is no limit to the number of CPD points which count to the overall requirement.

For more information on FPA and the CPD programme, see the CPD Policy and Member Support section of the FPA website:
