Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
CPD is the process through which professionals undertake activities to keep up to date with developments within their field of work thereby enhancing existing skills and developing new ones.
A range of activities such as attending or speaking at a conference, reading a peer reviewed journal or participating in a professional body's special interest group contribute to this process. It is essential for an individual to plan CPD activities effectively to identify which skills or knowledge need to be enhanced; the importance of reflecting on the activity undertaken to identify how it has enhanced an individual's skills should not be overlooked. IMarEST Echo is the Institute's recently launched professional development platform with access to a personal CPD record; it should be noted that this new online service and app is only available to corporate members of the Institute.
All IMarEST Learned Society events are recognised by the Institute’s Professional Affairs and Education Committee to ensure that each event meets the needs of its members with regard to CPD. Each Learned Society event is directed by a Technical Advisory Committee which is formed of experts from the marine sector both within the naval and the wider defence community. All papers submitted are peer reviewed by the Committee to ensure that the highest technical quality is maintained and the paper is relevant to attendees. All attendees receive a CPD certificate after the event which confirms their attendance for their own personal records.
It should be noted that the Engineering Council requires all its registrants to undertake CPD and attendance at this event may be used to demonstrate evidence of CPD.
