Continuing Professional Development Scheme for OISC Regulated Advisers

Introduction

The Continuing Professional Development scheme for regulated advisers will commence on 1st April 2008. This part of the OISC website will keep you informed as to developments in the run up to the launch of the scheme and assist you in complying with it.

The CPD scheme is being introduced by the OISC to encourage and assist advisers in undertaking continuous learning in order that they are best able to assist their clients.

The OISC is pleased to announce that it has engaged the services of the Open University to assist it in developing and maintaining the CPD scheme. Support and encouragement will be offered by the OISC where it can, for example by offering training courses free of charge to all advisers via e-learning.

The Open University will build and manage the online learning platform that will enable advisers to access and update their own individual CPD portfolios. In order to do this we require each adviser to have a unique email address and this can be either a business or a personal address as long as it is not used by anyone else.

If you have not done so already, please send your unique email address to cpd@oisc.gov.uk.

 The Open University is currently converting the OISC’s classroom courses into an e-learning format that each adviser will be able to access and undertake online. The Open University will also offer some of their non-core courses online, for example in management.

The CPD site will be kept updated with information on the scheme and associated regulation and guidance notes.
