CPD Renewal

ERMA Continuing Development Program (CPD) for Certification Holders

All ERMA certification holders are required to participate in ERMA Continuous Professional Development (CPD). In the CPD, you are invited to be actively involved in various professional development activities to obtain Professional Development Units or PDUs. Every ERMA certification is valid for two years, and you must obtain the required numbers of PDUs to renew and maintain your ERMA certification.

We believe that professional development activities must also take place outside your regular job or regular training activities. That is precisely why ERMA is introducing a way to maintain and continue to develop your competence in Enterprise Risk Management, by participating in various professional activities that will be awarded by PDUs.

PDUs are issued by ERMA to quantify the professional development activities conducted by every ERMA certification holders, and it is required to maintain each certification (ERMAP, ERMCP, CERG). We should add that it is also a good way to keep track and support your ongoing educational and professional development.
