The International Association of Animal Therapists expects a high standard of work and commitment from its members and to that end requires them to maintain their skill base by completing Continued Professional Development or CPD.

CPD has been defined as:

"The systematic maintenance, improvement and broadening of knowledge and skills and the development of personal qualities necessary for the execution of professional and technical duties throughout the member's working life."

At IAAT the required minimum CPD is 50 hours over a rolling two year period with an average of 25 hours per year. However, it is appreciated that most of our members will do considerably more than this.

It is important that CPD is completed over as wide an area of knowledge and skills as possible and at IAAT we have 8 key categories of CPD. Members have to complete CPD that covers a minimum of 2 categories per year and over any rolling 2 year period they must have covered a total of 4 categories.

This is to try and avoid the trap of simply attending the same conference every year in order to gain CPD points. Whilst the conference is likely to provide a significant learning opportunity, the requirement to cover additional categories will encourage greater overall development of the individual therapist.
