To establish and maintain standards, systems, and records in support of assessors and applicants, to ensure a consistent standard of assessment and feedback on CPD returns.
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a fundamental part of any career in engineering, ensuring 'professionally registered and active' engineers keep up to date by constantly learning and improving, developing skills and staying abreast of innovation. This will enhance your contribution to engineering and help you get the most out of your career. All volunteering roles offered by the Institution provide support for your CPD.
