Benefits of myLearning CPD platform

The myLearning platform is favoured by property professionals across a wide range of industries such as Architects, Building surveyors and Structural Engineers because it allows you to work in your own time and at your own pace while keeping your knowledge and skills up-to-date. Some of the benefits of the platform are:

  • Save money - We provide you with access to our online portal for no additional charge once you book a CPD seminar.

  • Flexibility - learning can be done at a time, place and pace that suits you. Downtime at work, organised 'learning periods' or working at home, there are many possibilities as our courses are available 24/7. Learners are not pressured to 'keep up' or conversely feel that they are waiting for the 'stragglers' as they can dictate their own pace.

  • Evidence - downloadable certificates provide evidence of learning and assessment success.

  • Up-to-date - training course materials are detailed, accurate and relevant. All our e-learning training courses are always up-to-date: as legislation changes so do the relevant references within the training course. You don't need to do anything as the amendments are applied automatically.

  • Employability - Shows a clear commitment to self-development and professionalism. CPD enables students to stand out when applying for jobs. Undertaking CPD training in any topic is a way of showing commitment to your development.
