IIESL has initiated Continuous Professional Development Programs in order to enhance the knowledge and skills of its Associate Members, and also to upgrade the professional standards of NCT certificate holders who are willing to join IIESL as Associate Members.

The first such program on Strength of Materials will be conducted by Open University Senior Lecturer Dr. Prasanna Ratnaweera, an eminent academic on the subject. For the convenience of participants, the program will be held on Sundays commencing on 3 February and continuing up to 24 March. The program will be conducted in English with Sinhala explanations where necessary. It will be immensely beneficial for enhancing the knowledge and skills of those engaged in the civil and mechanical engineering field.

Associate Members of IIESL who successfully complete the given number of CPD courses will be at an advantage to obtain a Corporate Membership. Any other person with NCT/NVQ or similar qualifications that successfully complete the given number of CPD Courses will be at an advantage to obtain an Associate Membership.

According to the recently-passed Engineering Council Sri Lanka Act No. 4 of 2017, the maintenance of professional standards and conduct of engineering practitioners should be monitored by the Engineering Council. In future, engineering practitioners in different levels must register to practice under institutions recognised by the Engineering Council, such as IESL or IIESL. Therefore, this type of program will help individuals become absorbed into the appropriate category of registration at institutions.

Employers could make use of this opportunity to sponsor their employees in relevant fields to follow the program, enhancing their knowledge to benefit their organisations. Details of the programme could be obtained from IIESL website (www.iiesl.lk) or Dulanjalie on 0718734235 or dulanjalie@leema.lk.
