Don't forget that, as an Associate Member, Member or Fellow of the Institute, you have access to a whole host of learning and training resources in IMarEST Echo.
Echo provides you with a central CPD recording tool, targeted learning and development content, and allows you to earn CPD for watching IMarEST TV lecture recordings. You can also access training modules, magazines, journals and guides. Echo has been developed to better support and encourage your professional development from wherever you are, as you progress through your career to higher levels of professional registration and grades of membership. If you have professional registration (Technician, Incorporated, Registered or Chartered status) it is mandatory that you record your CPD in order to maintain this status and you may be asked to submit your record for sample monitoring, which Echo makes much easier to do. If you are retired or on a career break you can request exemption from a sample.
This includes a new Mini MBA for the Maritime Industry as well as modules in Digital Skills, Communications, Leadership, Project & Time Management, Hydrography, Metocean, Marine Data Management Awareness and much more.
Have a look at opportunities available to you both within the Institute and the wider industry. This area also features ways you can give back to the marine community.
Browse and watch the latest videos on IMarEST TV.
Including magazines, eBooks, conference proceedings, archives of published material, talks and lectures, academic journals, market reports and much more.
If you have professional registration (Technician, Incorporated/Registered or Chartered status) you are required to record any CPD (continuing professional development) activities you complete. Echo provides an easy way to keep a centralised record which you can show as evidence whenever requested. Record your CPD online or on your mobile device, using the Echo app. Attach files or upload images as evidence, and add your reflections on your activities. If you are selected for CPD monitoring, submit your evidence using Echo, either by uploading files or choosing entries from your CPD record.
