CONTINUING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

 

To the end of 2001 the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Record has been put together to generally follow the required layout of the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) with slight modifications to satisfy the specific requirements of the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM) and the Geological Society.

The Record commences in 1972 and was initially constructed in 1991 using a record of previous courses and events that had been maintained since graduation. This was entered in the orginal ICE booklet 'ICE 108'.

Later a more detailed record was maintained and ring binders were used to collate and store the supporting information.

To 2003 the Record is maintained as a computer file, in a Word document. Ring binders are still maintained to keep supporting information in an ordered fashion.

The CPD Record was registered with the Geological Society in 1999 and a certificate is available confirming that satisfactory CPD had been completed for their first reporting period 1996-1998 inclusive. This was the first period of the operation of the Society's CPD scheme.

A further submission was made to the Society for certification for their next period to cover the years 1999, 2000 and 2001.  Their certificate to cover this period is dated 6 August 2002.

The CPD Record continues for 2002 and 2003.

From 2004 use has been made of the Geological Society's on-line CPD reporting facility. The first three year reporting period 2004-2006 has been completed and the second commenced in 2007 for the period 2007-2009. The period 2004-2006 has been certified by the Geological Society by a certificate dated 2 July 2007. The period 2007-2009 is awaiting certification.

A copy of the CPD Record in two volumes (Vol 1 to Dec 2006 and Vol 2 from Jan 2007 to date) is available upon request.
