Subjects in the Library are split into relevant categories. Clicking on a subject title, will take you to the subject outline for this subject, listing all of the sections. All subjects on the system follow a common layout, starting with legal requirements, through practical guidance, to sources of further help.
Continual Professional Development: Most subjects have a multiple choice quiz at the end, some of the very short subjects have a self-certification declaration. If you choose to complete these, they will count as CPD, with your personal record being automatically updated, with the pre-set number of hours, on completion.
As an organisation we offer practical and pragmatic advice to assist our members but it should not be regarded as legal advice.
