CPD - the Institutions's Role

The Institution has a vested interest in improving the expertise of its membership in two respects. First, it will gain in prestige and influence if its members are recognised by the public as being well-educated and trained, with high professional standards, able to manage their business affairs with skill, responsive to the needs of industry, and careful of the public safety and health. Secondly, the lnstitution itself will have a ready supply of good people who are able not only to direct its affairs efficiently, but also to speak authoritatively on its behalf, to advise Government ministries, to prepare new or improved design Codes ahead of necessity, to investigate new methods of design or construction, to give advice on how to avoid those errors and mistakes that lead to disasters, and to promote the good of the profession.
