CPD - Continuous Professional Development
Continuous Professional Development
The IMTA has adopted a policy on Continuous Professional Development points (CPDs) for graduate courses, post graduate courses, short courses and seminars. This is in keeping with the present requirements in the national educational/health services and on the international employment market. The various awarding bodies and interested parties (e.g. Departments of Education & Science, Health & Children, Consumer Affairs, awarding bodies and course providers), have specific criteria for accreditation of courses, workshops and seminars. The IMTA has taken these criteria into account when developing the CPD system and the Descriptors for its members, whilst keeping in mind the uniqueness of the holistic approach of body therapies and the ethos of the IMTA.
The purpose of CPD points is to ensure that the practitioner/therapist
a) learns new skills,
b) further developsknowledge, technique and ability and
c) keeps themselves up to date with developments in the national and international field of massage therapy.
The IMTA’s Continuous Professional Development 2016 - (CPD) System are in keeping with the present requirements in the educational / health services and on the national / international industrial market. The IMTA has a ‘Passport’ to record each of it's members CPD’s.
