Mandatory Continuing Professional Development Requirements for Corporate Members
Commencing 1 January 2019, competence-based approach to Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activities will be fully implemented as part of CPD requirements for Corporate Members. Corporate Members are required to undertake, out of the 30 hours per year, at least 5 hours each for two areas of CPD activities, namely “Technical Matters” (TM) and “Broader Areas of Studies” (BAS).
Corporate Members are required to complete and return an annual CPD Declaration Form together with the membership subscription advice to the Institution. A random checking, usually 1% sampling, on all Corporate Members, will be conducted on an annual basis. Members who are selected for checking will be asked to submit their evidences of CPD.
The following actions shall be taken in case of non-compliance:
1. Corporate Members who fail to comply with the CPD requirement in the first year selected for sampling will be asked to submit their records again in the following year;
2. Warning letters will be issued to Corporate Members who fail to comply in two consecutive years. The HKIE Continuing Professional Development Committee (CPDC) will also follow up with those Corporate Members on the reasons of non-compliance;
3. Corporate Members who fail to comply with the CPD requirements in the third consecutive year may be invited to an interview with the HKIE CPDC Representative(s);
4. Corporate Members who fail to comply with the CPD requirements for the 4th consecutive year will have their names published in Hong Kong Engineer.
