CPD goes mobile

18 September 2018

CPD Mobile Cropped

RTPI Learn, the Institute’s free online learning environment is now available on the go. A recent upgrade means you can access the training on your mobile device or tablet.

“Our members tell us how busy they are but they still want to keep on top of their CPD. We’ve responded by making it even easier to learn on the go.”  

RTPI Learn is key to the RTPI’s aim to raise and maintain professional standards in planning. All Chartered members commit to plan, undertake and record 50 hours of CPD in each two-year period.

Undertaking CPD differentiates a Chartered Planner from someone who is just practising planning and sends a message to employers, clients and the public that RTPI members are competent and professional.

RTPI Learn provides a range of free modules which planners can dip into whether they have five minutes to spare on the train or an hour over lunch. 

Andrew Close, RTPI Head of Careers, Education and Professional Development, said: 

“Our members tell us how busy they are but they still want to keep on top of their CPD. We’ve responded by making it even easier to learn on the go.” 

Bitesize modules take 30 minutes to one hour to complete and cover topics like professional ethics, smart cities and dementia.   

In-depth modules can be completed over a few weeks and provide up to 15 hours of CPD. Topics include viability, community engagement and climate change.

One learner who has completed the viability module said: “As someone who has very limited experience in this area, it provided a good introduction to the topic, particularly helping me become more familiar with terminology that I may encounter in my day to day role as a Planner.”
