CPD Policy (effective from 1 July 2017)
What is CPD?
To further promote membership and graduateship in terms of quality, the Council has in line with The Chartered Governance Institute International Council directives decided to build on the success of the ECPD training and prescribe CPD requirements for members/graduates (Relevant Persons). All members/graduates are required to fulfil the minimum CPD requirements of at least 15 CPD hours per CPD year (CPD Year) from time-to-time designated by the Institute.
What are the minimum CPD requirements?
Unless otherwise specified, The Hong Kong Chartered Governance Institute (“HKCGI”) requires all Relevant Persons to accumulate a minimum of 15 CPD hours per CPD Year with a basic to an advanced component of ECPD hours as follows:
- Basic level: of the minimum required 15 CPD hours per CPD Year, at least 3 ECPD hours should be from HKCGI's ECPD courses; and
- Advanced level: of the minimum required 15 CPD hours per CPD Year, all of them should be ECPD hours, with a least 10 ECPD hours being HKCGI's ECPD courses, and the rest being from Institute's and/or other Accredited Providers’ ECPD courses. Members achieved advanced level with at least 3 years’ of experience in company secretarial practice are eligible to apply for Practitioner’s Endorsement from the Institute.
