This year, ICE is introducing sanctions for CPD audit non-compliance, and will be expanding its pool of CPD auditors to prepare for an increase in the audit sample size in the future. As such, it is more important than ever to put together an effective Development Action Plan (DAP) and correctly record your Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
ICE defines CPD as “The systematic maintenance, improvement and broadening of knowledge and skills, and the development of personal qualities, necessary for the execution of professional and technical duties throughout your working life”.
It is the responsibility of the individual to define their own learning needs and undertake appropriate CPD to maintain and develop the professional knowledge, skills and competence they need. As such, ICE Training is here to help members along this lifelong journey.
How can ICE Training help?
Courses from ICE Training, whether in the classroom or online, are a fantastic way to meet your CPD requirements. If the full course list is daunting or you are not sure what you are looking for, there are a number of ways you can approach the challenge to make sure that the chosen training is the best option for you.
- Accreditations and CPD certified – Though not a requirement to contribute towards your CPD, gaining a formal accreditation can be a great mark of success as you continue to learn new skills. Seven of our courses have also been assessed by the independent CPD Certification Service as having great further learning value.
- Mapped to Member Attributes – A number of our training courses are linked to the ICE member attributes, making it easy to identify how the training can help fill skill and knowledge gaps. Visit the individual course pages for more information.
- View the 2020 Training Calendar – Not sure where to start? The Training Calendar can give you a give overview of the courses available, including online training, as well as all of the currently scheduled dates for the year.
- New, cutting edge training courses – We have wasted no time in launching our first new course of 2020: Carbon Management in Infrastructure. Tied to new government regulations, ICE Training endeavours to provide new, relevant training related to industry advancements.
