CIBSE, as a professional engineering body, gives members in Australia and New Zealand leading edge knowledge and information and promotes competence that forges new standards of excellence in design, science and engineering of the built environment.
In addition to international guidance, local professional development is offered on a diverse range of topics via monthly technical seminars, site tours and ENGineering Buildings CPD modules.
To increase learning opportunities in the region, CIBSE is incentivising accreditation of course providers in the CIBSE CPD Directory in Australia and NZ. This is so organisations can provide the industry with localised, specialist knowledge of new technologies and processes for the design and operation of buildings.
The incentive involves a significant discount for the first 3 ANZ providers to register a course for accreditation. A saving of 50% off the cost of accreditation will be applied when quoting: ANZCPD50.
Visit www.cibse.org/Become-a-CPD-Course-Provider to find out more.
Members can now expand their knowledge and register for in-house CPD with two accredited and locally delivered CPD modules:

Buildings Services graduates and ancillary professionals will soon be able to broaden their understanding of multiple building services engineering disciplines. CIBSE ANZ is close to completing a series of training modules for Mechanical, Electrical, Fire and Hydraulic Engineering which will be offered across the region from April 2019.
We will keep you informed of the new opportunities for you and your teams as the directory of course providers grows and as training modules become available.
Recording of CPD becomes mandatory
Undertaking CPD is a fundamental part of being professional engineer. Chartered Engineers make a commitment to maintain their competence through CPD, and to record that development. Professional engineering institutions – CIBSE amongst them – undertake annual random samples of registrants’ CPD records and give appropriate feedback.
New guidance from the Engineering Council means the recording of CPD will be mandatory for registered engineers and technicians from January 2019. Professionally active registrants who persistently do not respond to, or engage with requests for CPD records risk removal from the Engineering Council register.
CPD can be recorded via the MyCIBSE portal on the CIBSE website.
