About us

Why I started Anytime CPD Courses?

After many years as a chartered accountant and legal practitioner, I was frustrated by the many instances of high cost, inflexible and frankly poor quality CPD courses.

So I decided to do something about it.

There are good reasons why professionals should maintain minimum continuing professional development. There is no reason why meeting these requirements should be expensive in terms of time and money. Therefore my objectives are to provide courses that:

  • are affordable ;
  • can be taken at a convenient to for your, your client commitments and most of all your family;
  • are high quality practical and relevant courses that actually help you improve your professional service delivery; and
  • utilise the latest developments in online adult education.

Why Anytime Tutoring?

Some people prefer person to person or small group live interaction via telephone, Zoom, Google Meet or Skype. Quality tutoring needs to be affordable and flexible having regard to students’ busy lives.

With my experience and qualifications, I believe that at this stage of my career I have something valuable to share with those at the beginning of their career.
