CPD Scheme

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a way for professional geologists to maintain and develop the standards of technical and professional competence required for their work. As well as broadening your knowledge, CPD gives assurance to your employers, and to society in general, that you are professionally competent.

The CPD scheme:

  • is solely time based on hours (no longer a weighted points-based system)
  • more encompassing: a greater number of activities are included
  • has been re-categorised with six main categories of activities.

CPD planning and recording will be required for all Chartered Fellows (ie, for Fellows with CGeol and, or, CSci) and for Fellows aspiring to Chartership. Undertaking and recording CPD is also very strongly advised for other Fellows who are professionally active. 

As before, CPD is a recursive, reflective system of: plan → act → reflect based on experiential learning
