The “Quick Guide” gives details on the many ways to engage in CPD as well as information on the recording and reporting of CPD to the BOETT. Registered engineers are especially encouraged to make an annual declaration of their CPD on the CPD Reporting form and if required on the CPD Supplemental Reporting form. It is expected that an engineer will undertake a minimum of 10 hours of CPD activities each year. All submitted CPD forms will be logged and assessed for compliance with the reporting requirements for CPD and will be recorded against the name of the engineer.



Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

In 1998, the Board of Engineering of Trinidad and Tobago (BOETT) in partnership with the Association of Professional Engineers of Trinidad and Tobago (APETT) introduced a voluntary Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programme to provide a framework within which engineers may plan their career path and continuously update their skills in keeping with their professional responsibility.

In 2011, the BOETT and APETT is delighted to announce that CPD Programme is now being re-launched with the specific objectives of:
  • Ensuring and encouraging engineers to make the effort to educate themselves with regard to current knowledge and best practice within their industry ;
  • Meeting the growing demand for engineers to be able to demonstrate on-going competence in their activities; and
  • Aligning the BOETT and APETT with the increasing trend toward mandatory CPD as required by other professional engineering organizations around the world.
