The UK Association of Corporate Treasurers announced the launch of its on-line Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programme, sponsored by Standard & Poor’s. Significant investment and research have been undertaken to structure a resource designed to provide members with the necessary help and guidance to further their lifelong learning process at all stages of their careers. The programme is voluntary but strongly recommended for all members. Non-members are also welcome to access this knowledge service. Designed to keep treasurers up to date in a rapidly changing profession, the CPD resource hinges on a series of multiple choice diagnostic tests available on the Association’s website. The tests enable a treasurer to determine confidentially his level of proficiency. Website linkages lead members from the test results to relevant study materials and journal articles designed to enhance the treasurer’s knowledge in the tested area.Further information is available at http://www.corporate-treasurers.co.uk/know/cpd/
