Typically awarded to higher learning institutions or education providers and associations, dmg Events has been awarded their first longer-term agreement as a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Service Provider to provide not only SAICE members, but civil engineers across South Africa with training at their trade shows.
dmg Events currently offers CPD accredited skills-building workshops at all of its events, working with industry experts to provide practical and technical content that equips visiting professionals with the knowledge to make their jobs easier and more effective. The new 3-year verification removes the need to approve workshop content on an event-to-event basis.
„This recognises our interactive event workshops as accreditable platforms.“
"We are extremely proud to be awarded longer-term recognition by SAICE as a CPD service provider, which recognises our interactive event workshops as accreditable platforms to present learning activities for continuing professional development", said vice president of dmg events Devi Paulsen-Abbott. "This means that civil engineers can attend our event workshops – which are generally free of charge – to receive up-to-date, accurate industry knowledge, and remain accredited as per the body's requirements."
SAICE head of training, Tom McKune concludes: "Since the initial approval of the principle of continuing professional development many years ago, SAICE as an organisation has encouraged its members to keep abreast of developments and knowledge in their areas of expertise in order to maintain their competence. We welcome this opportunity to strengthen our ties with dmg Events, using the CPD framework to help professionals maximise their professional potential and overall business performance."www.dmgevents.com
