Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is the means by which both Associates and Members maintain, improve and broaden their knowledge and skills and develop the personal qualities required in their professional lives as genealogists and archive researchers.
AGRA aims to maintain and promote professional standards and, as such, encourages its Members and Associates to keep abreast of developments in the fast moving worlds of genealogical research and business practices. CPD is not just restricted to genealogical practices but may relate to IT, authorship, learning Latin, improving our palaeography skills, business skills and marketing.
CPD is compulsory for Associates, who need to show they have the ability and insight to manage their own professional growth. In order to become Members of AGRA they will have to follow a structured path of CPD and submit their log with their full Member application.
More details of the AGRA CPD program are made available to Associates and new Members, including templates for recording CPD, once they have been accepted into the organisation.
