EARN CPD POINTS AT ARBS SEMINARS!
The Victorian Legislative Council (the Upper House) voted on and passed the Professional Engineers Registration Bill 2019, which will introduce broad-based registration for engineers via the Professional Engineers Registration Act 2019.
The mandatory registration scheme will cover five disciplines: civil engineering; mechanical engineering; electrical engineering; structural engineering; and fire safety engineering.
Once the scheme is introduced, one of the major requirements will be to commit to a minimum log of CPD (Continuing Professional Development) hours. These can be accrued via on-the-job learning, training courses and seminars including the Speaker Series and IBTech Insight Series held at ARBS 2020.
It is understood there will now be a period of consultation and development of regulations to support the act. To see the Bill visit: http://www.legislation.vic.gov.au/domino/Web_Notes/LDMS/PubPDocs.nsf/ee665e366dcb6cb0ca256da400837f6b/294b464e14fe6430ca2583b4007b990d!OpenDocument
