What are CPEs?

business career professional development

Continuing Professional Education (CPE) is the ongoing learning and development that professionals do to improve their knowledge and skills.

As many of us know, it’s important for natural health professionals to stay relevant and up to date with the latest developments in their industries to remain competitive and meet the changing needs of their clients. Whether it’s exploring Chinese medicine, mindfulness, or sociology, CPEs help you to stay relevant and knowledgeable in your career.

Our CPE courses offer you the opportunity to stay abreast of new trends, research, and best practices, which can help you to become more efficient and effective in your practice. By staying up to date, you can enhance your expertise, improve your clients’ outcomes, and increase your own career prospects.

Additionally, CPEs are often a requirement for maintaining professional accreditation. Failure to complete the required CPE hours can result in the revocation of accreditation, which can limit career advancement opportunities and lead to loss of income.

In today's rapidly changing world, it is crucial for natural health professionals to invest in their ongoing learning and development. Our CPEs provide the platform for individuals to acquire new skills, knowledge, and competencies that can help them remain competitive and succeed in their careers.

I am not a natural health professional, can I still do these courses?

Absolutely! We have designed these courses to be accessible to anyone. Do keep in mind that a lot of this subject matter is degree-level content so you may need to catch up on the language and terminology used. However, we have designed the course in a way that allows you to learn at your own pace and utilises a range of different tools to help you learn.

How long will a CPE course take to complete?

Each CPE course has a different course length however, courses typically range from 30 to 40 hours.
