Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is the combination of learning activities through which registrants maintain and extend their knowledge and skills in order to remain safe to practise. For Registered Associate Nutritionists it is an essential part of their progress towards Registered Nutritionist status.
AfN endorses CPD learning activities provided by other organisations to enhance the competence of nutritionists, using content that is clearly referenced to scientific evidence and/or professional practice. AfN Endorsed CPD is delivered by a wide range of providers in an even wider range of formats. And all AfN Endorsed CPD has been evaluated against our Standards of Endorsement, so it carries the good name and industry respect of AfN.
Please note: AfN Endorsed CPD is predominately aimed towards improving or updating the knowledge of individuals who have already completed a degree in nutrition.
Completion/Attendance of an AfN Endorsed CPD does not make an individual eligible for UKVRN registration as either a Registered Associate Nutritionist or Registered Nutritionist, although they can be used as pieces of evidence of CPD within a portfolio.
