The purpose of CPD is to ensure that Mediators keep their knowledge and skills up to date for the benefit of users of their service and for their own personal and professional development. CPD has an underlying ethical premise that asserts that clients have a right to expect competent and skilled practitioners. Thus every Mediator has a responsibility to maintain and develop knowledge and skills, and alongside the individual responsibility, lies the professional Institute's obligation to provide the means whereby this can happen.Most professional bodies acknowledge that CPD is a commitment to lifelong learning with an emphasis on 'home skills', thus for the MII, the emphasis is on mediation skills.The MII requires that all practising Members complete a minimum of CPD hours and has agreed a CPD points system.
