Success Stories

With regards to the CPD ONLINE format.

1. I have learnt quite a few things in terms of having to hunt and really read up on a few of the questions asked.

2. I have attended quite a few CPD courses, you do it as it is a requirement, and you do not always walk away having learnt much.

3. In this format you have too, think out of the box and research quite a few documents to get to the correct answer some of the questions are quite tough and if you do not read up on it you will not pass.

4.I only hope that we can have more of this format on CPD, I spent 6 years in Zambia and could not attend any CPD courses during that time I was quite worried that I would not get to renew my LMI and this will resolve the problem that many of us LMI’S face working out of SA.

5. The added value is that I can now go back and see what questions I did not get right, and this is always a good thing as you can see where your shortfall is, learning from where you totally missed the question.
