Changing CPD Requirements Clive Shearer, writing from Washington State, USA, suggests some changes to CPD: First, I must thank Robert Horne for an outstanding contribution describing the path of many engineers of my generation. He must have read my resume! I am also fully in agreement with Messers Seaman and Bowden. Suggestion: (1) Scrap CPD as a blanket requirement. (2) Set up a body of peers to investigate public complaints about practising engineers: A review board: engineers who are found to be deficient in ethics, design approaches, noncompliant with Codes or standards shall be penalised. (There is a similar system in the USA.) For mild 1 transgressions, monitored CPD might be prescribed.
