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.

Updates to CIMA CPD monitoring

We are improving the way in which we monitor CPD records. From 1 September 2018, anyone selected for monitoring will be required to submit their record using the  Association of International Certified Professional Accountants Competency and Learning website.  

Using the website will help you to record your CPD in the correct format, removing uncertainty and giving you more time to focus on your professional development.

All CIMA members and CGMAs are required to undertake CPD and keep a record of their development activities. See regulations Part I, 13-18 of the royal charter, byelaws and regulations for more information.

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.
