Why become a professional?
A profession is a career for someone who wants to be part of society. You will have to be competent, maintain your skills through continuing professional development (CPD) and commit to behaving ethically so as to protect the interests of the public.
Professions are almost always regulated, either by law or through membership of a professional body, to ensure quality service to the public.
