Providing CPD enables organisations to understand key stakeholders in their organisations. CPD accredited training courses, workshops and events allow professionals to use the learning time towards individual CPD requirements.
There is obviously a major upside to the formal training and the need to attain a certain number of CPD points each year to retain the qualifications/accreditations can be beneficial. However, not attaining the CPD points does not make that individual worse at performing their job role. Also, if the individual is of an inquisitive nature they will look to learn without the need for formal training and CPD point gathering.
Maybe the question should be "Does the ITAM/SAM industry need formal training associated with CPD?".
