There is an increasing expectation for professionals to undertake Continuing Professional Development regardless of industry sector, career level, job role and responsibilities. The CPD Certification Service helps organisations formalise knowledge into a structured and recognised approach to meet those expectations. This means that Global Guardians can provide formally certified CPD materials which are more likely to become accepted and welcomed by our audiences. Organisations wishing to embrace CPD can display their commitment through CPD Certification Service membership. Member organisations are advised and encouraged to submit potentially qualifying CPD materials for formal and impartial CPD accreditation by a team of experienced CPD Assessors. We held our first CPD verified event on 29th January 2016, 'Enhancing Croydon'. Our event gave individuals a chance to see how Global Guardians manages our clients’ wonderful buildings through the use of Property Guardian Security. This included a tour of a property, a chance to talk to the GGM directors (who have been instrumentally involved in the industry for over 10 years) and network with other individuals from the public and private property sectors, local councillor Toni Letts and artists from the Brit School..
