The Project

Over the past 10 years, Engineers Ireland and the Irish Government have co-funded and developed an excellent framework model which employers of engineering professionals can use to connect training, learning & development initiatives under a best-practice umbrella: Engineers Ireland Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Accredited Employer Standard.

Engineers Ireland are currently taking part in a Leonardo da Vinci Transfer of Innovation project with the objective to share the expertise of the Engineers Ireland Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Accredited Employer standard with four other European partners from Portugal, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia. The successful completion of the project will be a proposed European CPD Accreditation framework for employers of engineers, technicians and technologists.

This project is funded 75% by the EU Commission’s Leonardo da Vinci Lifelong Learning Programme and 25% by the participating partners in the project.
