How do I manage my CPD?

Planning and recording your CPD


InstMC provides a free web-based tool, mycareerpath, where you can record your CPD activity and reflect on its value.  We encourage members to take advantage of mycareerpath as a service that is specially designed for professional engineers. But if your employer operates their own CPD scheme you may prefer to use that, or any other suitable method that allows you to plan and record your progress.  


CPD Audit


As part of our commitment to professionalism, every year we randomly select a sample of members and ask them to submit their CPD records for audit. The audit is carried out by experienced assessors who are senior members of the Institute, and they will provide feedback to you with suggestions where appropriate.  This is not an examination which people pass or fail, and we do not keep records of assessors’ comments  – it is a service to members to help them get the maximum benefit from the CPD activity.  Nevertheless it is a requirement  of our Bye Laws and of the Engineering Council that members co-operate by submitting their records for audit when requested.
