LexisNexis and Storkk present: The Ultimate CPD Solution
AUCKLAND, 17 April 2014 - LexisNexis and Storkk have today launched a secure online Continuing Professional Development ("CPD")application which allows users to find and access all available participating CPD programmes, enabling them to more easily and efficiently satisfy their development needs.
From 1 April 2014, it became mandatory for legal practitioners (and other professionals) to create development plans and undertake 10 credit hours before 31 March 2015 in order to maintain their practicing certificate.
With LexisNexis and Storkk, the time and frustration spent on planning, recording and tracking CPD programmes is minimised through convenient access to a secure online site which enables users to create and update their plans and record programmes, anywhere/anytime.
Spreadsheets become a thing of the past as comprehensive progress reports including outcomes and reflections can be quickly generated online, while the use of live online chat and timely services ensures that users are supported every step of the way.
“With this new online CPD tracker, lawyers can utilise the latest technology to save time and money, ultimately improving the everyday efficiency of their firms,” said Rachel Travers, Executive Director of LexisNexis New Zealand.
Law professionals can easily identify, record and find courses to meet their professional development needs in their professional development with all their learning history in one place. Users can use this intuitive tool as a guide to create relevant plans that will satisfy their developmental needs.
“This unique CPD application has been developed in collaboration with the industry. Lawyers and firms across the country told us how they want to manage their mandatory professional development and we delivered a solution that meets these unique requirements,” said Brad Booysen, Storkk CEO.
Managers can be confident of where their practitioners are with their professional development and can easily identify and remedy potential areas of concern. Safe and secure data can be accessed to review compliance history, track time spent training and monitor staff progress.
