A Range of Development Opportunities

Members’ development as professionals is the aim and purpose of the CISI, and the resources we make available ensure that they have opportunities to learn, develop and progress in their careers.

MyCISI, the online members portal, gives access to a range of resources to keep members up-to-date with professional sector developments, maintain regulatory compliance and demonstrate continuing learning.

This includes CISI TV where members can view recent CPD seminars, an online edition of the S&I Review, which can be read through the mobile app, and Professional Refresher, the CISI’s online training solution.

This means that all the insight, updates and news available can be accessed anywhere, anytime.

CISI members all have their own online CPD record. All of the CPD members undertake is automatically added to their CPD records, removing the administrative headache of manually adding CPD.
