For compliance purposes, RPEQs must record their CPD activities. IPWEAQ's new online CPD logbook is the most efficient way to manage your CPD obligations.
This online logbook keeps track of CPD activities including conference attendances, conference presentations, papers published, private learning and more. Regular updating of your CPD logbook not only keeps track of your CPD hours, it builds your CV.
As a Registered Professional Engineer of Queensland (RPEQ), you occupy a position of trust and responsibility within the community, industry and across government. To ensure your skills and knowledge remain up to date, an RPEQ must engage in regular structured Continuing Professional Development (CPD). As a minimum, an RPEQ must participate in 150 hours professional development over any three year period.
Objectives of CPD
CPD activities are designed to:
- maintain or increase technical competence
- develop new areas of expertise
- increase effectiveness in the workplace
- grow your leadership capabilities and improve career opportunities
- increase your network of fellow professionals
A minimum 10 hours must be dedicated to risk management during any three year period.
The RPEQ Guidelines outline the types of professional development activities considered acceptable to attain or retain RPEQ status.
Auditing of CPD Hours
If you have not signed up for IPWEAQ's CPD Scheme, which automatically audits your CPD obligations, you may be subjected to random audits.
