I remember sitting on the Midland Counties Branch Committee some years ago when the subject of continuing professional development was first raised. The general reaction was an ‘Oh my God another imposition on the poor long-suffering engineer’ followed by ‘Surely anyone who wants to progress has to develop, and good professionals certainly make an effort to keep up to date’. Recently I read a letter in the NCE that made the second point yet again, and while I recognise that there is a deal of truth in the premise, it does miss the point. S.G. Evans
