One thing that being a registered meteorologist really drums home is the importance of continuous professional development (CPD). Regardless of your role, or level of experience, keeping your skills current and up to date is highly important. Being part of the Royal Meteorological Society provides many opportunities to do this, as well as a way of logging your achievements.
