Initial Professional Development (IPD)
IPD requires a continuum of educations,
training and personal development, which builds upon the education
base in order to achieve the professional competence required for
registration as an Engineer or Technician in the gas industry. It
is the process of acquiring and developing the special skills and
approaches needed to practice at a Professional level within the
gas industry and within the engineering sector generally. IPD
covers the training requirements from the period of studentship to
registration. The essence of IPD is the development of competence
by learning as much as possible from productive work
You can track your IPD progress by using IGEM's 'mycareerpath' via the 'My IGEM'
login. This self assessment tool enables you to monitor yourself
against agreed competencies by planning and recording evidence
linked to competencies or longer term goals. You can also have your
assessments, plans, reports and evidence reviewed.
