What is the difference between CPE, CPD and FPC?
Wednesday 25 January 2017
Yes, it is a trick question. These are all terms used for the training professionals undertake on a regular basis to keep themselves up-to-date with their subject. The letters stand for CPE (Continuous Professional Education, used mainly in the USA), CPD (Continuous Professional Development, used on other English-speaking countries such as the UK, Australia and Canada), FPC (Formation Professionnelle Continue in French, Formación Profesional Continua in Spanish).
The thing all these acronyms have in common is that the training is for professionals - persons competent or skilled in a particular activity and engaged in that activity as a main, paid occupation and that the training is carried out on a continuous basis. So the start of a new year is a great time to be planning how your training will raise your professional capabilities in 2017.
