The second general meeting of the KIVI Chartered Engineering department will take place on Wednesday evening 27 October. As part of this general meeting, we will engage with each other in a session on Continuing Professional Development (CPD), a topic that triggers quite a few questions among Chartered and Incorporated Engineers, as well as candidates. To provide us with useful inspiration, we are proud to welcome Ben Jones from the UK Engineering Council to present about CPD in the UK.
Every Chartered or Incorporated Engineer must register 50 CPD hours every year, divided over all chartership competences. After two years, the registration period is closed, and, if at least 100 CPD hours have been registered, the registration as Chartered or Incorporated Engineer is prolonged by two years (also referred to as ‘re-registration’). KIVI will apply spot checks to see if CPD hours have been registered correctly. However, CPD is not only there to comply to the requirements for re-registration, it is also intended as a mirror for personal reflection. CPD is there to provide yourself with insight about your own professional development, to discover your own focus points for improvement and in which competence, and to work on this actively to increase your professional strength. Your own development and personal reflection are essential elements in chartership.
The Chartered Engineering Section would like to engage with members about how CPD can be done. What counts as CPD how do you register that? From this session, guidelines will be created to help Chartered and Incorporated engineers with CPD and the registration thereof.
In short, we are looking forward to a fascinating evening.
Space is limited due to Covid19. Therefore, the evening will be organized in a hybrid way. You can be present live, but you can also join digitally via teams.
