About CPD FIRST

E-Learning at your desk

At CPD First, we offer e-learning courses in GOVERNANCE, RISK and COMPLIANCE (GRC), as well as relevant BUSINESS MANAGEMENT and SOFT SKILLS subjects. These courses delivered by recognised SUBJECT MATTER EXPERTS, will help ensure your staff learn key principles to enable them to comply with relevant laws, regulations and best practice appropriate for their particular roles. Working with our partners, we are building a ONE-STOP shop for all your firm’s online e-learning requirements in GRC subjects.

The courses will be aimed at INTRODUCTION and ESSENTIALS levels and will last between 30 mins and 1 hour. More ADVANCED courses, up to 3 hours or longer will be delivered in due course.

ALL courses  are regularly updated – they’re factual,  interactive and supported by the latest relevant case study examples.

Not only are our courses fun, they’re great value for money and for teaching large numbers of staff, they offer much better value than face-to-face learning.

Our courses are authored by recognised subject matter experts in their chosen fields and are updated every 6 months to reflect current best practice, whilst citing recent relevant cases.

All courses at CPD First are independently accredited by professional recognised bodies.
