Open Conference

#AEUK18

More than just an exhibition...

The advanced engineering industry is constantly evolving with new technologies, regulations and more. At Advanced Engineering you can easily keep up-to-date by attending one of our six CPD accredited open forums, filled with over 200 sessions covering hot topics presented by the 'Crème de la Crème' from the industry.

We are pleased to announce that the Advanced Engineering 2018 Open Forums are Continuing Professional Development certified in principle. Post event, certificates will be emailed out to all attendees who actively attended an Open Forum session and had their badge scanned for that session.

 

About The CPD Certification Service

The CPD Certification Service was established in 1996 as the independent CPD accreditation institution operating across industry sectors to complement the CPD policies of professional and academic bodies.

What is CPD?

Professionals across all industries are aware of the importance of training & development, and the need to enhance skills to stay proficient in the workplace. CPD (Continuing Professional Development) is to keep professionals up to date with relevant training, information, skills and knowledge so that they remain competent throughout their career journey. CPD enables learning to become conscious and proactive, rather than merely reactive. CPD creates positive change through a methodical approach to learning.

Benefits of CPD

CPD increases professional confidence and overall capability. CPD generally compliments career aspirations. Providing time to complete formal CPD allows an individual to take time away from day-to-day responsibilities, and adopt an enhanced strategic and tactical overview of workplace challenges. CPD does not have to be done all at once, and can be split into bite-sized, “modularised” segments. This is a significant benefit to those constricted by time, resource and budget.
