The Welding Institute hosted a successful Continuing Professional Development (CPD) webinar last week, reaching a global audience of professionals looking to further their knowledge and understanding of the importance of CPD.

Event Overview

The informative webinar, which was led by our Membership Team and guest speaker Martin Boyd (Acting Vice-Chair of Membership Committee and Vice-Chair for East Midlands Branch), covered a range of topics including:

  • Overview of CPD requirements and expectations
  • Guidance on recording CPD using The Welding Institute’s tools
  • The CPD cycle
  • Examples of activities that can count as acceptable CPD
  • How to use the Engineering Council’s online professional development system mycareerpath®
  • How our Members have used and benefitted from CPD throughout their career

Speaking on the event, our Membership and Registration Team Manager, Lotte Quivst-Larkins, said:

“The Membership Team would like to thank everyone who joined our CPD webinar on Wednesday 12 May as well as thank our guest speaker, Martin Boyd, for this great contribution to the event. CPD is a major element of Institute membership and we do hope that our attendees went away with an improved understanding of the importance of planning and recording their CPD as well as some ideas on how to go about doing this. Hopefully, some of our Members' questions about being picked for a CPD audit will also have been addressed. The Membership Team is always available for further guidance on this, so please feel free to contact us at any time.”


Our Members can now find the webinar recording on our Members Portal here.
