Implementation of the ECSA CPD Standard
The CPD Rules were amended, finalized and approved by Council on 16 March 2017, and were published on 19 May 2017 in the Government Gazette No. 40847 as Board Notice 86 of 2017.
On the 23rd of September 2018 the first revision of the procedure which include the licensing, verification, validation and audit processes were tabled and approved by the PDSG committee. It was decided the implementation of the CPD standard will commence in the 2019/2020 financial year.
The successful implementation of the CPD Rules and associated Standard will ensure that ECSA as the sole authority and regulator for CPD in the engineering sector closely monitors, oversees and regulates CPD functions such as the verification of providers and validation of activities as currently managed by VA’s, Accredited Tertiary Institutions and any other private providers who will, henceforth, be known as CPD Licensing Bodies.
ECSA, as the sole authority, reserves the right to license bodies mentioned above.
