Continuing professional development (CPD) is an essential activity for any practicing engineer. Engineers and other professionals engage in CPD for a variety of reasons including staying up-to-date with current developments in their discipline, professional networking, and facilitating career progression. In this unit, you will demonstrate your commitment to CPD by undertaking and recording professional practice exposure. You will analyse the organisation structure, products and service of your host organisations, reflect on what you have learned from professional practice activities and you will develop a strategic approach to personal and professional growth in the workplace. You will also use this unit to demonstrate that you have completed the professional practice requirements of the Engineering Course you are studying.
