Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
CONTINUING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
The Society is committed to providing members with guidance on Continuing Professional Development (CPD). Professional development is at the centre of the aspirations of the Society and we are keen that members take part. Registration with the Engineering Council carries an obligation through their code of conduct for professional development. From 2016 all registrants will be obliged to record CPD. More information about Engineering Council requirements here.
The Society provides an online portal for Continuing Professional Development. mycareerpath can be found in the Members Only area of the website and is available by registering for this part of the website. If you have any questions about CPD or mycareerpath, please call the SaRS office on 0161 393 8411.
WHAT IS CPD ?
It’s the systematic way of keeping up to date in your field(s) of professional work.
WHY DO CPD?
Because working professionals from all disciplines need to refresh and widen their knowledge. All institutions and professional societies require their members to maintain current awareness within their chosen discipline; from 2016 it will be a mandatory requirement of the Engineering Council for a registrant to maintain CPD and this will be sampled. A member of an institution/society may be required to complete CPD
WHEN TO DO CPD?
Throughout your career. Consider your immediate and longer term professional needs, how you can satisfy them, and integrate them into your working life.
HOW TO DO CPD?
Follow the guidelines above and register with mycareerpath.
