It depends on the field and I haven't done a survey, but North American
physicians are nowadays required to attend updating courses (that's apart
from special certification for each of a wide range of specialities).
Lawyers have to spend a lot of time keeping up with new legislation and,
since most of the US and Canada) are Common Law jurisdictions, following
decisions and their reasons.

Another topic, perhaps the start of another thread:
Why do my spelling and syntax go to pieces when I'm writing for the net?
