PD Passports offer members and other professionals interested in taking multiple Passport valid courses throughout the year at tremendous savings.  Personal Passports allow a member to receive over a 50% savings per course if taking advantage of the full five days of courses, mixing half-days, full days and two-day passport valid courses, but could also receive a saving of 28% if only registering for three days of PD in one year.

Corporate Passports work on the same basis, the more courses taken, the bigger the savings, but this passport has the versatility of multiple users from the same company or firm (see PD Passport )

PD Passports are valid from April 1st to March 31st the following year.

Member Passport holders can register for additional courses over the passport entitlement at the per course passport cost.  The following table shows a breakdown of the Passport pricing:

Passport type


PD Passport fees

Additional per course fee










5 full/10 half








9 full/18 half







Some courses are not passport eligible due to arrangements made by the presenters; when possible a reduction in the course fee will be offered to passport holders.
