Continuing Professional Development (CPDs) FOR IMMIGRATION PRACTITIONERS

Continuing Professional Development (CPDs) FOR IMMIGRATION PRACTITIONERS

Virtual CPDs

Regulated occupations in Canada require professionals to complete a specific number of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hours to continue their membership and remain in good standing with their respective regulatory bodies. CPD is defined in most industries as the maintenance, enhancement and continuous improvement of knowledge, skills and career-related abilities. Participating in CPD activities allows you to ensure your knowledge and business skills are current and up to date, develop your personal skills, grow professionally and further your career path.

Ashton College prides itself on delivering more than just CPD hours. We invite speakers who are leaders in their fields of practice and speak on topics that help you stay ahead of the curve. Ashton CPD events are valuable, informative and they allow working professionals to meet requirements in a way that matches their own professional goals and learning preferences, with engaging and relevant content.

Currently, CPD Seminars from Ashton College are delivered digitally through high quality interactive online platforms. Our immersive seminars are delivered LIVE online and allow you to connect to the speaker and your fellow attendees for a rich learning experience. Our live online sessions are recorded and made available as a recorded video for convenient viewing.

Experience a higher level of learning and benefit from a lineup of relevant and timely topics, presented by distinguished experts. All seminar topics cover a broad spectrum so that the speaker can discuss relevant issues that can apply to your career at any stage of your professional journey.
