August 18, 2023 - January 31, 2025

This is an e-learning offering available to students on-demand.  You take this program at your own pace. There is no start and end date. 

This CPD course is offered in mobile audio format so that you can complete your CPD anytime, anywhere using the ProDio mobile app. 


Expectations for Learning

Conflicts of interest can certainly cause serious harm when they are mishandled, yet their occurrence is not unusual in our professional lives. Organizations and individuals need and value our expertise, and as we take on more roles and opportunities, we’re likely to face situations that might present real or perceived conflicts of interest. Laws, regulations, professional codes of conduct, and company policies all take great care to ensure that those in positions of trust are held to account if they put self-interest ahead of their professional duties.

In this course, you’ll learn about some of your key professional obligations regarding conflicts of interest. You’ll also determine how to recognize situations that might pose conflicts of interest so that you can avoid them or deal with them effectively. You’ll consider how to decide whether a conflict of interest should be eliminated outright, or whether the party owed a duty might be better served by managing and mitigating the conflict of interest. And finally, you’ll review potential safeguards that can be used to properly manage and address conflicts of interest when they do arise.


Learning  Outcomes

In this course you will learn how to:
  1. Distinguish between the existence of a conflict of interest and the inappropriate actions that can result if a conflict of interest is improperly handled.
  2. Distinguish between real and perceived conflicts of interest.
  3. Identify how conflict of interest considerations appear in laws, regulations and professional codes.
  4. Recognize ways to avoid conflicts of interest when possible, identify conflicts of interest when they arise, and promote compliance in your organization.
  5. Evaluate how serious a conflict of interest is and determine whether it can be managed and mitigated or whether it needs to be eliminated.
Registration for this audio course includes quizzes, access to worksheets and a certificate of completion.
