RIAI CPD Engage -Online CPD System for RIAI members and registrants
In the course of each year, each registrant/member must accumulate a total of 40 hours/points of CPD activity, at least 20 of which must be structured.
As part of the RIAI’s ongoing Continuing Professional Development (CPD) expansion and development programme, the RIAI has launched an online management and delivery system for registrants/members to plan and manage their CPD activities. cpdengage™ is provided by Aurion Learning, a Belfast based educational design company.
As part of broader changes taking place in the RIAI, particularly with respect to Registration of the title Architect and ongoing work relating to architectural technicians, the Institute has established a ‘Standard of Knowledge, Skill and Competence’ for each grade of membership.
The Standards, together with the RIAI Statement of Policy on Architectural Education, itemise the areas in which architects and architectural technicians/technologists must have specific expertise and the level at which that expertise is required. These standards are used as the backbone of this system, providing a framework within which registrants/members can assess their level of expertise and thereby plan their CPD.
RIAI CPD Engage provides a centralised source including all of the key information and tools registrants/members need to plan and undertake CPD effectively. The system also includes a catalogue of upcoming programmes and can notify members of programmes in their stated areas of interest.
RIAI CPD Engage is designed to allow you to Assess – Plan – Record – Reflect on your practice as an Architect, Architectural Graduate or Architectural Technician in Ireland.
To use RIAI CPD Engage go to http://cpd.riai.ie. Your login is your RIAI member number prefaced with the letters RIAI e.g. riai99999 or riai00001; your password is your RIAI web login password.
Why not start by identifying CPD opportunities using our online Competency Assessment tool in the Portfolio area which allows you to identify the areas you wish to develop in using the RIAI Standards of Knowledge, Skill and Competence.
