Professional standards are the cornerstone of a professional body. Engineers Ireland recognises the importance of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) in maintaining and raising members’ professional standards.
On joining Engineers Ireland, all members make a fundamental commitment to ongoing self improvement. It is this underpinning ethos – the professional obligation to learn - that is a decisive contributor to the credibility in society of the engineering professional and the engineering profession.
Students approaching graduation should be aware that Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is mandatory for all Engineers Ireland members. This requires a minimum of 5 days or 35 hours of CPD per annum, which involves a cycle of planning, recording and reflection.
