The London Institute of Banking & Finance (formerly IFS University College) has recently issued a new recertification process guide for those holding the CDCS® and/or CSDG® certification.
The main changes include:
- Re-certification still needs to occur every 3 years, except where individuals have successfully completed 5 re-certifications. These will be automatically awarded the designation of CDCS® advocate (CDCS® Adv) and the re-certification period will be extended to every 6 years. Over time, reference to PDU's will be replaced with CPD learning hours.
- Up until 31 October 2019, 24 CPD Learning Hours/PDU's are required to recertify. The restriction on the number of hours/PDU's that can be earned in any one year has been withdrawn. However, for those recertifying on or after 30 April 2020, 36 CPD Learning Hours/PDU's will be required to recertify.
- Recertification is still subject to payment of the respective fee.
