A new era for CPD – welcome to the future

CPD is changing, for the better. From April 2015 the SRA moves away from simple hours based CPD to a new competency system – solicitors will demonstrate how they have met their learning and development needs. Cilex has already adopted this system, and the Bar Standards Board is examining its future strategy. Chasing 12 or 16 hours CPD, in the last few weeks of the year, at inconvenient locations, but at great cost – it was crazy and it’s now ended.

It is therefore time that we changed too. You’ll get the same content, delivered online – waiting for you, whenever convenient, via our CrimeLine Complete platform.

CrimeLine Complete

CrimeLine Complete is our new knowledge platform, comprising market-leading textbooks, case and legislation databases, research resources and learning tools.

Many of you will be familiar with our Online CPD Product allowing you to obtain CPD hours by answering online quizzes – this has now been incorporated into CrimeLine Complete.

But CrimeLine Complete is more than this – setting your learning pathway for CPD, Learning and Development. Everyone will be able to obtain CPD via quizzes, and listen to podcasts and webinars. Simply studying our Updater emails will count towards CilEx and SRA competencies.

At a price you can afford

CrimeLine Complete is priced at £99+vat per user. So about the price of a traditional 3-hour update course (if you ignore the travel costs etc), yet including so much more. No other product comes close to providing a complete knowledge and training solution for criminal law practitioners.

So, it’s not goodbye from us, it’s welcome to the future

We will continue to run a very small number of face-to-face bespoke courses – but we were looking to the future long before it was announced – we are ready, so trial it with no obligation for 14 days.
