Professional Affairs Report
Professionally Speaking… As discussed in our last column, work on the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) program for P.Phys. holders has been progressing. The draft CPD was brought to the Spring CAP board meeting for endorsement, and it was accepted.
A copy of the current version of the proposed CPD can be downloaded here.
Development of a simple CPD reporting tool (that will be part of the CAP website) is in progress – we hope to have something to demo at the annual CAP Congress in Kingston.
CAP recently did a small “benchmarking” study of the P.Phys. process and requirements with those of the Institute of Physics (UK) Chartered Physicist designation. This comparison identified several areas for further investigation, and again, we hope to have something to discuss at Congress.
And on the subject of congress, I hope to see many of you there. We are holding our Professional Physicist gathering on Tuesday at 7pm.
