Should I do Training Courses or CPD Courses?

What is Training?

Moxabustion on an ALIED Acupuncture Course - ©ALIEDWhen students first start Acupuncture they attend a Foundation Training Course or a Degree Course in Acupuncture, in which their competence to practise Acupuncture is assessed. Students are then encouraged to attend further training courses after their initial Acupuncture course. Such training: -

What is CPD?

Continued Professional Development [CPD] can be achieved in a number of different ways including courses. The essential difference between CPD courses and Training courses is that a Training Course takes Acupuncture skills further and the competence in the new skills is assessed against defined criteria, whereas in a CPD course there is no such assessment. It follows that CPD is not Training and is not admissible as Training, whereas of course Training Courses do count as CPD.
