An Introduction to Continual Professional Development for Engineers and Engineering Departments

Developing your team is critical to the long-term success of any organisation

Course Overview

Engineering departments are expensive to build and maintain (in terms of salary), this only increases the need to develop them.

In an ideal world we hire an Engineer, and they perform above and beyond their level, this training will demonstrate a strategy for accelerating your Engineering Department’s competency through internal, cost-effective methods.
