Core CPD Framework

The RTPI Core CPD Framework provides a comprehensive overview of the core CPD planners need to meet the planning challenges of today and the future.

The RTPI uses the framework to shape the CPD delivered by the Institute. It was developed with input from members, employers and the wider profession, highlighting the skills and knowledge our members need to meet current and future planning challenges.

You can now record your CPD online on your profile page - read our guidelines for more information.
