CIMA professional development is the continuing professional development scheme for CIMA members; it supports you in your career by helping you identify your future learning needs.

All CIMA members and CGMAs are required to undertake CPD and keep a record of their development activities. See regulation 15 of the royal charter, byelaws and regulations for more information.

How to meet your CPD requirements

What are the benefits?

As business becomes increasingly complex, learning throughout your career ensures that you:

  • Remain up to date and relevant
  • Develop your knowledge and skills
  • Play your part in maintaining the integrity and credibility of the qualification and the profession.

How much do I need to do?

CIMA doesn’t prescribe numbers of hours or units, we simply ask that you do as much as you need to remain professionally competent and meet your career goals.
