Continuing professional development (CPD)
Continuing professional development is essential for biometricians as new statistical techniques are always evolving, often driven by advances in computing. It is also important to keep up to date with the rapid advances in biological science, which often require new statistical approaches.
Your professional work as a statistician might well benefit from the professional qualification of Chartered Statistician (CStat), which would give you a professional affiliation with the Royal Statistical Society. Membership of the British Region of the International Biometric Society will connect you to a worldwide network of statisticians working in agriculture, the environment, health and medicine.
