Continuing Professional Development (CPD) in healthcare is the virtuous circle of maintenance and development of competence, skills and knowledge through learner-centred and evidence-based activities. Completion of CPD activities as required by professional bodies is to promote and ensure effective, efficient, and ethical patient care by healthcare professional (HCP).

CPD activities from the Nestlé Nutrition Institute Africa (NNIA) keep HCPs updated with new research and advances in nutrition, benefiting patients across professions where nutrition care is practiced.

Equip yourself with advances in your field to better serve your patients.

The NNIA helps you to practice lifelong learning through webinars, trainings, tools, and peer-reviewed publications.

When you register with the NNIA we keep a record of your occupation and your interests, helping us provide you with CPD activities that serve your profession and interests.

Broaden your knowledge and improve your skills to enhance your daily practice and career with CPD activities from the NNIA.

Thousands of registered dietitians trust NNIA for their nutrition CPD activities

The NNIA posts activities in the form of scientific articles and webinars accompanied by multiple-choice questionnaires that are accredited for 2 or 3 CPD points each.

Members must obtain a minimum score of 70% to attain the allocated CPD points. To keep our NNIA members updated, regular alerts on upcoming CPD activities are sent via email.

The CPD activities are available online for their entire year of accreditation.

Healthcare professionals can complete our CPD activities until the 15th of December each year.

A CPD certificate is available immediately upon completion of an activity. Those registered with the HPCSA will have their points updated on the HPCSA portal regularly*. Members can view their NNIA CPD activities and points at any time on their NNIA profile.

*The NNIA sends an activity update to the HPCSA fortnightly

Non-HPCSA accredited healthcare professionals are encouraged to enquire with their relevant professional bodies on whether HPCSA-accredited activities will be recognised for CPD points.
