All licensed CPAs in Ireland must complete a total of 120 hours of CPD over three years, of which at least 75 hours are Structured CPD and 45 hours are Unstructured CPD. The minimum requirement is 30 hours of CPD in any one year, of which at least 15 must be structured.

There is no minimum ethics requirement, however, a practicing member must complete 40 Structured CPD hours in six core competencies over a three-year CPD cycle out of which one is professional ethics.

Structured CPD: It includes all CPD that has learning as the primary objective and which is measurable and verifiable. For Structured CPD to be accredited it must be measurable and verifiable. There are two forms of Structured CPD:

  • Directed study
  • Self-directed study

Unstructured CPD: It can be defined as any form of informal learning or development of day-to-day working skills achieved through self-study and/or informal training. Unstructured CPD can be measurable but is not verifiable.
