The technology we use in our everyday lives and at work is evolving at an ever increasing rate. All engineers need to ensure that they not only keep up to date with the latest technology and engineering best practice, but that they are able to capitalise on the use of these techniques for the benefit of their employers; for example though improved fleet management and the introduction of more cost effective maintenance strategies.
Members of the professional engineering institutions need to demonstrate this commitment by taking part in
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activities. For technicians and engineers that are not members of their relevant institutions, Professional Skills Development is just as important – and it can also offer valuable support for all those wanting to progress their careers, too.
Whilst Professional Skills Development can take many forms, a key contributor is attendance on formal training
programmes. It is important therefore that you select the best training options available, both to support and recognise your engineers – and increase the value they bring to your business.
