Institute of the Motor Industry members who attend the event will receive credit towards their IMI Continuing Professional Development requirement.
The IMI’s CPD initiative is a way for its 25,000 members to improve their individual skills and plan their career development. Members completing the required two days of CPD every two years are awarded a certificate of CPD Achievement, with all learning evidence recorded by the IMI, which can be accessed by the member in support of a CV or job interview.
Members can submit CPD evidence at any time. It can take the form of both ‘structured’ and ‘unstructured’ activity, including formal training programmes and work-based learning respectively. The IMI believes CPD will play an increasingly significant part in improving business performance as well as helping to raise the profile, employability and status of those working within the automotive sector, at any level.
Sarah Sillars, the IMI’s chief executive, comments: “By offering independent formal recognition of learning achievement, which for many goes unnoticed, the IMI believes CPD will go a long way in tackling personnel issues in the industry and enhance the employability of those working within it.”
