The idea of the relaunch was to make the system more inclusive, easier to use and maintain and more modern with the launch of an online credit recording system.
Now BIGGA says that members have really caught on to the system.
The 1,000th member is Anthony Sunney, first assistant greenkeeper at West Middlesex Golf Club. He claimed CPD after attending an educational seminar at Oaklands College and wins a voucher for the Continue to Learn programme at BTME 2016.
BIGGA’s head of member learning Stuart Green said: "We’re delighted to see we’ve hit the landmark 1,000th member who has engaged with CPD. It’s proved far more popular than the previous scheme as we can see with these numbers.
"It’s important to note that the ethos of CPD has not altered – it identifies you as a professional, competent, knowledgeable and motivated individual who will be a valuable asset to any employer.
"I’d like to thank all of our members who are using the programme, the benefits are clear for all to see."
CPD credits can be claimed for attending educational, networking or professional activities. More information is available on the members section of the BIGGA website.
