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
If you have not done so already, please send your unique email
address to email@example.com.
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
The CPD site will be kept updated with information on the scheme
and associated regulation and guidance notes.
