CPD During Covid 19
The IDE understand that completing the required CPD hours at the moment may not be possible, with this in mind we have temporarily suspended the requirement to obtain IDE core CPD and will allow flexibility regarding other CPD achievements where appropriate. CPD remains as important as ever so we encourage you to take part where possible and make the most of any online meetings, workshops, and training etc and as always please ensure that you can provide us with the relevant evidence for your records. We will monitor this closely in line with government rules and guidance and keep you updated as and when there are any changes.
In its aim to advance the science of demolition engineering the Institute demands of its members that they demonstrate that they are doing their best to keep their knowledge and expertise up to date and are thus competent Demolition Engineers.
It is through its commitment to continuing professional development that the Institute is able to contribute to the safety, efficiency and competence in an industry that is as old as the walls of Jericho but only perceived as a science over the last three or four decades.
Following comment from members and consultation with other professional bodies, the Institute has revised its scheme. This is operational from 1 January 2011
Please use the following form Personal Record of Continuing Professional Development to notify and e-mail [email protected] with
- The date or dates of the CPD.
- What you did.
- How many hours you spent in the activity.
- A copy of any supporting documentation or certification you received as evidence.
For more information regarding the CPD criteria please see our useful leaflet CPD Flyer
