Do you think continuing professional development is just about training for compliance or checking the box to maintain licensure? Not anymore.
In today’s professional environment, continuing professional development provides learners with the opportunity to manage their own professional growth to meet a personal or professional goal. Continued learning is important. In fact, a 2018 study indicated that 40% of millennials who don’t receive the necessary on-the-job training will leave their position within the first year.
Professionals choose to learn a new skill for a number of reasons. One key reason is to advance within their current profession. Another reason is to change careers. In fact, 52% of our continuing and professional education students chose to take an online class to develop a new skill or improve an existing skill. Twenty percent said they wanted to take an online professional development class to advance their career.
