Since 2011, Engineers Nova Scotia has conducted a CPD Program Evaluation every two years to gauge understanding of our Continuing Professional Development Program and to identify possible areas of improvement. The most recent survey was distributed in November 2021 and 1,700 responses were received as compared to 1,200 responses in 2019. Some observations from the results are:
Are you aware of the mandatory Continuing Professional (CPD) program that commenced for Engineers Nova Scotia members on January 1, 2011?
Are you aware that the number of CPD hours required is a minimum of 240 rolling hours in a three year period starting in a registrant's first full year of registration?
Have you ever visited the Professional Development section of the Engineers Nova Scotia website?
Are you aware of Engineers Nova Scotia's online CPD tracking system?
If yes, have you used the system?
Does your employer support you in attending professional development opportunities?
On a scale from 0-100 (0 being lowest, 100 being highest), registrants were asked for their thoughts on the following:
The Engineers Nova Scotia Online Ethics Module is a valuable resource for registrants.
Completion of the Engineers Nova Scotia Ethics Module should be mandatory for all registrants on a regular basis.
Completion of an Online Learning Module on Equity, Diversity, Inclusivity and Accessibility should be mandatory for all registrants on a regular basis.
Completion of an Online Learning Module on Indigenous relations and reconciliation with the Mi’kmaq of Nova Scotia should be mandatory for all registrants on a regular basis.
