At WBPS our accredited Continuing Professional Development (CPD) training courses are designed to help progress individuals within the engineering sector and aid them with essential skill sets. Our mission is to provide life-long learning, as well as the opportunity to discover something new. Courses including Power Generation CPD, Standby Generator CPD and Critical Power CPD, are just a few examples of courses available for individuals to achieve their objectives. Following completion of a successful CPD accredited course, opportunities from new job openings, development in existing positions and higher earning opportunities become potentially more viable. At WBPS, CPD is an ongoing process, aiming to improve skills and competencies, whilst enhancing workplace performance and future career prospects.
A CPD training course is a great way to discover something new and take learning development to the next level. Working alongside a current job role, courses are put together to support the improvement and development of its members. Whilst there is no one-size-fits-all approach, the courses offer a blended method that incorporate a range of courses and learning opportunities. Working alongside current work commitments, with courses varying in length from one day up to several days or over several weeks, our CPD opportunities offer flexibility and balance, enabling our members to successfully manage and complete their learning.
There are so many benefits to enrolling on to a CPD engineering course. Whether it’s to learn something new, refresh existing knowledge, improve skills, or simply keep up-to-date with the latest developments, they are a great way to enhance workplace performance and improve future career prospects. At WBPS, our CPD courses are designed for individuals who wish to identify potential skill gaps in their position or workplace, highlighting areas within the business that can be improved. With our commitment to continual learning development, CPD is a great way to keep on top of any developments within the industry
Our CPD courses can take many forms of learning. Whether lectures, seminars or workshops, there is no one-size-fits-all to how they are approached. Courses can be delivered either in-person, such as classroom style, or online, or even possibly a hybrid of both. A blended approach to learning is our aim, incorporating active learning, passive learning and self-directed learning. The different learning methodologies can vary depending on the type of CPD course undertaken. Individuals can structure their learning easily throughout the year. Whichever method of learning is undertaken, CPD provides flexibility so that the individual can find a learning style that suits them. The CPD Cycle is a practical tool that helps individuals structure their development easily throughout the year. The five key stages of the CPD Cycle include planning professional development activities for the year. These include:
