Effective Sept. 1st, 2012, DisclosureNet training will count as one substantive hour toward annual CPD requirements for legal professionals in Ontario.

This accreditation adds incredible value for our legal clients because our training ...promotes their personal career development and equips them with skills to be more productive and efficient at work.

Effective September 1st, legal professionals in Ontario can complete a DisclosureNet™ training session that will count as one substantive hour toward their annual Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements. The Law Society of Upper Canada has deemed DisclosureNet training sessions an Eligible Educational Activity within the CPD framework.

“This accreditation adds incredible value for our legal clients” begins DisclosureNet’s CFO Peter Kaju, “because our training now provides them with a dual benefit; it promotes their personal career development and equips them with skills to be more productive and efficient at work every day.” The benefits associated with the CPD accreditation align with DisclosureNet’s longstanding objective to simplify things for its clients in all industries.

Kaju was instrumental throughout DisclosureNet’s accreditation process, and notes that to be considered as a substantive CPD credit, programs must have at least 0.5 hours of professional content. In addition to meeting these requirements, the cloud-based software also helps legal professionals conduct precedent research, organize documents, quickly locate specific clauses, and monitor securities filings through email alerts.

After clients complete the training, DisclosureNet will issue a certificate confirming the date and time, as well as the name of the DisclosureNet employee who delivered the training session. DisclosureNet is providing this convenience to its clients so that in the event of an audit, the participant will already have a formal document validating the training.

British Columbia is the next province expected to approve DisclosureNet training as a substantive CPD credit, with official certification anticipated in early autumn. The company’s ultimate goal is to become accredited in every province across Canada by the end of 2012.
