Supporting your CGMAs

Retaining talent through CPD

The CIMA continuous professional development (CPD) policy ensures members maintain their professional competence, relevance and ethical awareness while effectively building on the CIMA qualification they have already attained.

The CPD policy is a lifelong learning framework. Rather than just counting hours or units the policy focuses on how learning can be applied on the job. The new skills, latest thinking and best practices CIMA members acquire will help your organisation to perform better.

CIMA can help you support your staff with their lifelong learning in many ways.

CGMA Store

The CGMA Store gives members an unprecedented choice of CPD resources in leadership, strategy, risk and technology and much more, through the new Association of International Certified Professional Accountants. CIMA members are also able to get up to 20% off resources.

All resources count towards CIMA’s Continuing Professional Development requirements.
