CRED: Continuing Professional Development

TOPRA's Continuing Regulatory Education and Development (CRED) programme is a series of regulatory affairs courses designed to help professionals keep up to date or develop their career in new directions.


The CRED programme

The programme comprises a series of courses lasting one to two days, run over a two-year cycle.
  • Structured but flexible continuing regulatory education, allowing regulatory professionals to design training programmes to suit their individual needs 
  • A choice of 16 interactive workshops, covering eight core topics, providing regulatory professionals with the opportunity to build up a dossier of training demonstrating technical and practical knowledge 
  • A balance of theory and practice, equipping participants with practical skills that can be applied immediately 
  • Speakers drawn from both regulatory agencies and industry, offering different perspectives
  • Interactive sessions (often case studies) where participants and experts share ideas and experiences and address common problems faced in everyday situations.
