With increasing public expectations and demands on the profession, CPD is now regarded as a vital necessity. The ability to remain viable and competent is vital for the profession. The rapidly changing and increasingly competitive business environment hinges ultimately on members’ commitment to continually upgrade their professional knowledge and skills.

Under the scheme of the CPD programme, RMCs are required to maintain at least 90 CPD hours per triennium, of which at least 65 hours must be structured learning, with a minimum of 14 structured learning hours annually; and 25 hours of unstructured learning. In view of ‘TR 43 Management Consultants’ guidelines, RMCs are required to fulfill their CPD hours in order to retain their RMC Certification.

CPD should contribute to the professional competence of the individual RMC and therefore, as a general rule, acceptable CPD courses or activities should be relevant to the work of the RMC concerned. RMCs are required to maintain their own CPD records in similar format set out in the RMC-CB web portal and a sample format is attached. Download RMC CPD Form here.
