Why Is Cpd So Important?

Professional benchmarks are always changing, as such keeping your professional development continuous is critical if you are looking for a new position or advancement in your current field. We also know that training budgets are not what they used to be, and it can be difficult persuading your employer to fund your educational needs. So how do you take your education into your own hands?

Gain new skills through volunteering: Volunteer for not-for-profit organisations or professional associations to become a mentor in your area of expertise. This will also help expand your skills. Or participate in and/or run one of our discussion groups.

Create an action plan: Start to identify what skills are required and what information is needed so you can plan how to achieve them.

Self-educate: One of the best ways to continually grow in the field of your expertise and interests is through self-initiated learning.

GRCI supports risk and compliance officers through education, accreditation, networking events, advocacy programs to Government and regulators, awards for our professional members and thought leaders, as well as a rich source of online resources such as the GRC Professional Magazine and Compliance & Regulatory Journal. Our goal is to provide high quality services that benefit our members.

Compliance induction programs for staff and the benefits

Businesses and organisations have their employees complete a compliance course so they can avoid situations that may make their company legally liable. Compliance courses also help employees detect any violations of company policies. In the end, compliance training creates a more hospitable work environment where peers respect each other and the jobs they must perform. Companies who have their employees’ complete training thereby lay the groundwork for a defence should any employee wrongdoing occur.

At GRCI, we can deliver programs or individual modules in-house, as part of your organisational training framework. The courses can be tailored to meet the specific needs of your organisation, within the parameters of the national qualification framework, ensuring optimal value for your business and employees.
