MyKludo Academy Continuing Professional Development Hours

MyKludo Academy is committed to delivering high quality professional development that can be counted toward annual continuing professional development (CPD) requirements. The requirements for earning CPD hours can vary depending on the state you work in and your association membership. You can claim your CPD hours through your relevant association. Programs are relevant to multiple professions including: Legal, Human Resources, IR/ER, Psychology, Investigations, Insurance and Education and training.

Each MyKludo Academy offering, whether it be a conference, seminar or one of our on-demand webinars, has been assigned CPD hours. Participants will receive a digital badge verifying the CPD hours achieved. A digital badge is simply a digital version of your credentials.  Every time you participate in training with MyKludo you are awarded a record of your participation via a digital badge. This badge contains verified metadata that details the key skills gained through the specific training, as well as the hours spent. This information can be accessed simply by clicking on the badge. For information on our current badges visit our Company Profile at Credly.
