It is designed to provide appropriate and achievable learning outcomes, mapped to National Occupational Standards and delivered by competent trainers. It will include strong emphasis on developing your CPD portfolio and will offer certification for the purposes of CPD, meeting CIfA’s CPD requirements of 50 hours over two years that will help you to
