The Royal College of Psychiatrists Improving the lives of people with mental illness


CPDO logo

CPD Online is the e-learning resource for mental health professionals, produced by the Royal College of Psychiatrists. 


Aims and objectives

The aim of the CPD Online website is to provide comprehensive and excellent quality online training support for mental health professionals across the world. The site contains a continually expanding list of learning modules (online courses) and podcasts to help psychiatrists maintain their existing skills and gain certification towards their CPD programme. Using different forms of multimedia, the website aims to accommodate a variety of learning styles, making learning easier and more dynamic than traditional methods of learning. The other major benefits of online learning are that it can be done anytime and from any place, making learning highly accessible to everyone who wants to participate.
