Mandatory CPD topics introduced by CIBSE

Online training

The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) has introduced mandatory CPD topics for its members.

in addition to existing CPD requirements, members must now undertake and reflect on at least two CPD activities, one on sustainability and one on building safety.

This change is to ensure CIBSE members stay up to date on key industry issues and is being driven by the government’s target to reach net zero by 2050 and the introduction of the Building Safety Act in 2022.

A key element of the requirement is the call for its members to reflect on their learnings. They are being asked not only to learn themselves but to share that knowledge with others.

Stephen Page MCIBSE, AtkinsRéalis, CPD Panel Chair said: “Mandating CPD on these two key issues will help ensure building services engineers stay informed on the latest technology and techniques in building safety and sustainability and can apply that knowledge in their daily working lives. In requiring our members to reflect on these mandatory topics we are asking them to consider how they can pass on their learning.”

Semi-structured activities will allow flexibility around individual development objectives. They can be carried out via supplier webinars, videos, mentoring and CIBSE events and training courses. The CIBSE Knowledge Portal and the CIBSE CPD Directory also offer a bank of resources.

CIBSE members are required to maintain a log of their continuing professional development activities, which must include details on how they pass on their learnings to others. To verify compliance, individual members are selected at random and their logs audited by a panel of members.
