It takes effort to carry all this out, so, when planning and recording your CPD, remember the acronym SWEAT! (Self-study, Work experience, Events and seminar, Academic study, Training courses). Information on any of these activities can be recorded in mycareerpath® including subject, type of work, duration and learning outcomes. Using mycareerpath® puts your complete records in one place so that they can be simply and easily sent to your institution as part of your professional review, or to update them on your CPD record if you’re already registered. You could even send your complete records to your employer as part of your appraisal. This database is available to all ICorr members to use via the Members Area of the website.
For graduate engineers or experienced engineers wishing to obtain CEng., ICorr has developed a mentoring scheme to help you ensure that you have the necessary education and experience to meet the competences required for this, and provide guidance with competency assessment in the field of corrosion engineering, completion of the application forms, and professional review interview. This scheme is being launched in 1Q 2018 (see previous page). The Institute needs Mentors and Professional Review Interviewers to help candidates, so if any of our chartered members would like to become one or both, please let the ICorr office know and we will contact you.
