Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is
any kind of structured learning undertaken by professionals that serves to enhance their skills and competencies.
The Central Bank of Ireland's Minimum Competency Code 2011 (MCC) requires that qualifications and experience must be maintained and built upon through CPD in order to ensure that insurance practitioners keep their knowledge current. In practice CPD also offers great opportunities for personal development and networking.

Under the MCC, an accredited person must hold a recognised insurance qualification with a professional designation or have a regulated firm certify them as a Grandfathered Person.
To maintain their accreditation a Qualified or Grandfathered Person must satisfy the following Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements as outlined in the MCC:
- Complete 15 hours of formal CPD each calendar year.
- At least 1 of these CPD hours must relate to ethics.
- The 15 hours must also contain a minimum of 1 hour of CPD for each regulated function undertaken.
- All CPD completed for MCC purposes, must be accredited by the III.
To assist members in meeting their MCC CPD requirements, the III accredits, delivers and monitors CPD as part of its member benefit package.
