Change to CNHC’s CPD Policy
On 25 February 2019, CNHC emailed all registrants to inform them of an update to their Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Policy. This update was agreed at the CNHC Board meeting last month.
The requirement for 5 hours general learning has been updated so the policy now reads: “The other five hours may be more general learning” instead of “must“.
