Continuing Professional Development - CPD

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a long term commitment. It refers to the ‘systematic maintenance, improvement and broadening of knowledge and skills'. It is about learning and putting into practice new competences year after year, and investing in your future.

As a member of CIBSE you are required by the Code of Professional Conduct to maintain your professional competence. The Institution provides clear guidance and support for professional development, enabling you to develop in your career.

The CIBSE CPD Guide for Members will provide you with guidance on what constitutes as different CPD activities and how to go about recording your CPD. The CPD page in the MYCIBSE area allows you to record your CPD in one place and link your progress to set objectives.

  • On-the-job learning
  • Private reading and study
  • In-house programmes
  • Conferences and seminars
  • CIBSE Regional, Group, Society or Network meetings
  • Academic studies
  • Professional Institution committee work
  • Writing papers and articles
