The College of Law today announced it has acquired the business operations of CPD Interactive. CPD Interactive is an online provider of continuing professional development (CPD) and continuing legal education (CLE) training.
CPD Interactive currently offers more than 120 courses through its online platform, covering all the mandatory requirements for legal CPD. The company has delivered more than 12,000 courses since its launch in 2008. The online offering of CPD Interactive will complement the College of Law’s already extensive online catalogue, face-to-face courses, webinars and skills development programs.
The previous owners of CPD Interactive, Natalie Wieland and Liz Kollias, have been retained by the College of Law to help grow the business.
The College of Law’s Chief Executive Officer Neville Carter is delighted to welcome Natalie and Liz to the College of Law’s team.
“We are excited by the platform they have built. The College of Law will now apply its resources and the knowledge of its faculty to deliver even better education products to the Australian legal profession.
“This acquisition strengthens The College of Law’s position as the leading provider of legal education in Australia.
“The professional development of lawyers has never been more important, as the industry experiences sweeping change. Investing in quality education is critical for any lawyer wishing to keep themselves relevant, or to learn new skills to advance their career. That’s why The College of Law has chosen to expand its range of educational products by acquiring CPD Interactive,” Mr Carter said.
CPD Interactive will continue to offer its courses through its existing platform. The commercial terms of the acquisition are confidential.
