Credit-Bearing CPD

A full list of modules on offer can be found below.

Non-Credit-Bearing CPD

CPD offerings take place in UCC throughout the whole year, across all Colleges, Schools, Departments, Units and Centres.  We have currently classified the CPD based on the College/School that offers it, but keep in mind that offerings outside of your professional area may also meet requirements for your CPD.  For example, those in Finance may find themselves looking towards Civil Engineering for some CPD in relation to Renewable Energy.  Make sure you have a good look at what's on offer and find a fit that is beneficial and rewarding.

If you don't see something here that you think would be of value to your profession or within your industry, please contact the Centre for CPD (cpd@ucc.ie) - our aim is for CPD to be responsive to your needs and so your input is vital.
