Protection CPD hub

Online resources for your continued professional development

To help you meet the challenges of the Insurance Distribution Directive (IDD) - which requires everyone selling insurance to do at least 15 CPD hours per year - we’ve created a CPD hub.

Here you’ll find protection research, webinars and guides - all divided into bite sized chunks, so it’s easy to build up those valuable CPD hours.

Just view the content you’re interested in, answer a few related questions and we’ll send you a completion certificate for your CPD records.

Hub content will be continuously updated – with new modules added on a regular basis to help meet your development needs.
