Mandatory CPD checking for Engineering Council Registrants

Carrying out regular CPD is recommended for all IFE members; however those who are also registered with the Engineering Council (EngC) are obliged to undertake CPD as part of the registration agreement. From January 2017, in accordance with The Engineering Council’s Registration Code of Practice, Professional Engineering Institutions (PEIs) including the IFE have been required to implement random CPD sampling and this was carried out for the first time earlier this year.

The process of the 2018 random CPD sampling will shortly begin and those selected will be contacted in early December so if you are a registered CEng, IEng or EngTech we would suggest that you ensure that you CPD record is up to date.
