Continual Pro Development

CPD points at LFCA Masterclass Sessions

Most of our Masterclass sessions, which take place on Monday evenings at SCORE Centre, carry CPD (Continual Professional Development) points. Check this website when a session is approaching for information regarding this.

Although the Masterclass sessions are open to all LFCA members whether they require CPD points or not, these points (measured in hours) are necessary for all coaches to maintain their coaching certificate status.

The points earned for each session may vary in that each session will cover its own range of levels – some for Levels 1-2 and some for Levels 3-4.

We will endeavor to announce this on the website before each Masterclass session


How to attend and gain CPD points:
