CPD records for the architectural technologist
Every qualified technologist has to prepare an annual plan of their continuous professional development requirements so that a period of sustained CPD can take place. For many it's a haphazard leap from month to month looking for anything that resembles CPD, relying upon manufacturers and iPad presentations. This paper describes the way a plan should be put together and, in particular, the tools that should be used to develop your plan year on year, and how to store information for future retrieval. It addresses questions such as, where should your information come from? How should your plan be put together? What should direct your choice of subject matter for CPD — workplace and/or personal interest? It investigates the CPD requirements of a newly qualified technologist and those of a seasoned professional. There are a variety of tools to choose from: paid-for subscription programs the CIAT paper log, or Internet-based free methods of record-keeping and storage. This paper outlines an easy-to-use spreadsheet stored in Google Docs.
