EBK CONTINOUS PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT (CPD) TRAINING PROGRAM

The Engineers Board of Kenya in pursuant of Section 7(1)(q) of the Engineers Act 2011 is implementing the Continous Professional Development (CPD) policy for Engineers.

This policy seeks to develop and continuously improve the competency of engineers in Kenya. The CPD Programs began in January 2018. According to Section 32(2) of the Act, Consulting and Professional Engineers seeking to be issued with a practicing license must present a certificate of CPD issued by the Board. Graduate Engineers with over 3 years of experience are also expected to complete the allocated PDUs for them their names to be maintained in the register, such evidence will be required for successful registration as a professional engineer. Consulting and Professional Engineers will be required to accumulate a minimum of 50 PDUs annually to renew their practice license, while Graduate Engineers will be expected to demonstrate attainment of at least 25 PDUs for three consecutive years prior to registrations as a professional engineer. PDUs are pre-determined by the Board. This link provides further details on Engineers CPD Policy Guidelines.

Formal activities under which CPD Training belongs is among the CPD Activities classified as Structured and Unstructured, Training is a Structured activity. Two (2) hours of course attendance equals one (1) PDU. Viscar Industrial Capacity Limited an Accredited EBK CPD Service Provider offers the following programs in fulfillment of the CPD Policy:
