Forge & Farrier, For Farriers

Continuing Professional Development

It is recommend that ALL farriers continue their professional education throughout the course of their careers. Continuing Professional Development (CPD) may be undertaken in a variety of formats, both theoretical and practical.

Since 2014, it has been mandatory for ATFs to complete a minimum of 10 CPD points each year; from January 2016, all newly registered farriers will also be required to undertake CPD. For further details please visit the Farriers Registration Council website.

The Forge & Farrier Events Calendar contains many CPD events so do keep an eye out for new ones being added! (and if you are organsing one it is great to check date availability first!)
