Professional Development is a fundamental part of any career in engineering, either Initial Professional Development (IPD) for graduate engineers, or Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for established engineers, ensuring that you keep up to date by constantly learning, improving knowledge and developing skills to stay at the forefront of your industry. Not only will this aid your contribution to corrosion engineering, but it will also help you get the most out of your career.   The Institute is committed to provide assistance and guidance in IPD and CPD by, the exchange of information and ideas at branch meetings, seminars and conferences, the provision of training courses in corrosion control activities to members and non-members, and as the Institute is a Learned Professional Body it has a Continuing Professional Development Record Scheme and the provisions to become Chartered Engineers or Scientists.
