Maintain your civil engineering credibility by keeping up-to-date with your CPD.
ICE members have been asked to prepare for this year’s CPD audit beginning in February.
During the audit, a sample of members will be contacted via email with a request to submit copies of their 2021 development action plan (DAP) and personal development record (PDR).
Recording CPD is a mandatory requirement for all professionally qualified ICE members. Members and fellows who don’t submit their CPD records to ICE after three requests will be removed from the ICE membership roll and Engineering Council register.
Having up-to-date CPD records is essential for all ICE members. This enables them to reflect on the effectiveness of their learning activities and plan for next steps.
It is also important for civil engineers in order to maintain competence by keeping knowledge and skills current.
Through the CPD guidance, ICE provides advice on how to follow the "plan – act – assess – review" learning cycle. ICE also offers useful templates for members to look ahead using a DAP, and evaluate the key learning points and benefits using a PDR.
New CPD framework
Furthermore, in 2022, ICE launched a new framework of key CPD topics that members are strongly recommended to undertake in addition to their personal learning as part of their ongoing development.
Members are advised to include the topics in the CPD framework as part of their professional learning and development.
ICE offers a wide range of further training and career development options for members. This includes qualifications, courses, lectures, books and journals. ICE Library also has a range of resources available to members.
