Recording CPD is a mandatory requirement for all professionally qualified ICE members. Members (MICE) and Fellows (FICE) who don’t submit their CPD records to ICE after three requests will be removed from the ICE membership roll and Engineering Council register.

This year’s audit begins in February. A sample of members will be contacted, so look out for an email requesting you to submit copies of your 2020 Development Action Plan (DAP) and Personal Development Record (PDR). Having up to date CPD records is essential for all ICE members, to enable you to reflect on the effectiveness of your learning activities and plan for next steps.

As a civil engineer, it is more important than ever that you take responsibility for your own personal development to maintain your competence by keeping your knowledge and skills current. Your CPD records also help you demonstrate your motivation to adhere to professional standards, as specifically mentioned in the ICE code of conduct.

Through the CPD guidance, ICE provides advice on how to follow the Plan – Act – Assess – Review learning cycle as well as useful templates for you to look ahead – using a DAP, and evaluate the key learning points/benefits – using a PDR. There are also FAQs, examples of best practice and suggested areas of learning available at:

We do understand the difficulties and challenges many individuals, professions and workplaces are facing with regards to the Covid-19 outbreak and appreciate that finding CPD opportunities may not have been as easy this year.
