Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is the system that professional bodies, such as CIBSE and RIBA use to maintain, improve, and broaden the knowledge and skill that architects and engineers need to perform their professional duties throughout their professional life. It includes developing the personal qualities needed to perform these duties.

Dr Dejan Mumovic of University College London and CIBSE Home Counties are initiating the Continuing Professional Development scheme to:

  • maintain and promote high standards of work within the building design and engineering profession
  • enable architects and engineers to develop their careers by acquiring new professional skills and areas of practice

The main objective of this CPD scheme is to ‘provide users of the e-SBDE learning platform with a high level of academic expertise in all areas of sustainable building design and engineering combined with excellent professional skills ’.

The CPD activities provided on the e-SBDE learning platform are:

  1. of significant intellectual or practical content
  2. primarily related to the design and engineering of sustainable buildings
  3. conducted by internationally recognised academics and practitioners
  4. relevant to a practitioner’s immediate or long-term needs in relation to their professional development

CPD activities provided under this scheme include but are not restricted to the following:

  1. organisation of short seminars, symposiums and conferences
  2. organisation of modular part-time thought postgraduate courses
  3. organisation of distance learning modules
