Once registered as a SiLC, it is important to develop and grow your professional knowledge and skills by conducting Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

Those individuals on the SiLC register should maintain their credibility and are able to demonstrate that their knowledge, understanding and skills are maintained, developed and updated.

Upon completion of the application process, SiLCs will be required to sign a declaration to state that they will comply with their professional body requirements regarding CPD (see Appendix 5 of the candidate guide).
