TESTIMONIALS

 "CPDonline’s programs are professional and the website is easy to use. The videos are also a much better price and quality compared to other on-demand providers."

Frances Brennan, Criminal Lawyer, Individual Subscriber


"We have five lawyers in the firm; we use to spend around $6000.00 per year. Now with CPDonline we spend a fraction of that…$1566.00."

Nicholas E. Gehl, Wills Estates, Real Estate, Firm Subscriber


“This has been a godsend for my budget. Having access to these videos has also been a huge convenience. My goal is to learn more, and these videos have been excellent.”

CPD DEAL FOR LAW ASSOCIATIONS

IT's AN WIN FOR EVERYONE!

image14

YOUR ASSOCIATION WINS, YOUR MEMBERS WIN, AND YOUR LIBRARIAN WINS!


By becoming subscribers to CPDonline, your members would have on-demand access to the best CPD available.


They would save hundreds per year on what they would otherwise pay and your association would receive thousands (maybe even tens of thousands) of dollars every year.


Plus, showing CPDonline videos to groups will reinforce the library as a CPD resource centre and meeting place for members. 

EARN MONEY BY OFFERING CPD TO MEMBERS!

image15

For every member who purchases a CPDonline subscription, CPDOnline will pay your Association $100.00  - EACH & EVERY year! 

  

Your members must get their 12 hours of CPD per year.  But why should they pay as much as 4x the price elsewhere to get hours?  


CPDonline has Ontario Law Association content for as little as $399.00 per year ($199.00 if purchased in 2019).


Make sure your members use their code when signing up.

MAKING LIFE EASIER FOR LIBRARIANS

 When groups are CPDonline subscribers, it’s hassle free for the librarian: no fees to collect, no handouts to print, no attendance certificates to disseminate.  


These administrative undertakings are automated because the members are CPDonline subscribers. 


All handouts are made available in their CPDonline accounts & certificates are automatically emailed to each attendee. 


So what does the Librarian have to do to show CPDonline videos to subscribers?

1. Add the email addresses of attendees in the field under the video

2. Hit the Play button.
