New regulations and challenges for CPD

New regulations and challenges for CPD

Two reports from 2018 highlighted the need for engineering professionals to demonstrate their competence. The Professional Skills report explored the current and emerging skill requirements for civil engineers, while Peter Hansford’s In Plain Sight report looked at ways of assuring the whole-life safety of infrastructure – including the role of CPD.

Both reports underline that it's more important than ever for civil engineers to take responsibility for their personal development and to maintain their competence by keeping their knowledge and skills current.

ICE Training is a great resource for completing your CPD requirements, learning something new or suring up old skills. View upcoming training courses here.

Professionally qualified engineers must formally record their CPD

The requirement to undertake CPD has been in place for many years,but ICE and the Engineering Council have tightened up their regulations so that it's now mandatory for professionally qualified engineers to formally record the CPD they have undertaken.

That requirement should be straightforward for any professional, but members who don't comply when requested as part of ICE’s annual CPD audit could lose their membership and registration.

Help with recording CPD for ice members

While the regulations and code of conduct set the framework, CPD is a personal responsibility. The template and platform on which CPD is recorded is the member’s choice, but a host of resources are available on the ICE website to help members who need support with their CPD recording.

And if you want help with the CPD itself, ICE has brought together a wide range of further training and career development options including qualifications, courses, recorded lectures, books and other publications.

For further information, please visit My Learning, available from MyICE

The 2019 CPD audit will start in March and involve a random sample of all professionally active members, so look out for a request via email if you happen to be selected, and be ready to submit.
