About CPD days

Continuing professional development, or CPD, is a crucial aspect of professional body membership.

The LI asks all our corporate members to complete a minimum of 25 hours’ CPD activity per year. This is to help members uphold the highest standards of professional competence and knowledge.

To this end, the LI will run a full programme of CPD and specialist events from autumn 2018 and throughout 2019. A core element of all these events will be an inclusive interactive learning session delivered by a specialist in the field of study. (For members who can’t attend a CPD day in person, we will also live stream a selection of sessions on the day.)

LI CPD days are an excellent and affordable way for LI members and landscape-related professionals to develop their professional knowledge and expertise. The cost of attendance includes lunch, refreshments and networking opportunities.
