At the parchment presentation at Engineers Ireland’s Headquarters in Dublin, Caroline Spillane, Director General of Engineers Ireland, said: “I wish to congratulate Purcell Construction for their dedication to professional development and achieving CPD Accredited Employer status. The CPD Accredited Employer Standard recognises organisations which implement specific continuing professional development policies to support their engineers and technical staff. Professional development has become the keystone for companies to stay ahead of their competitors and at the forefront of their customers’ minds.”

At Purcell we are committed to the highest standards of safety, quality and sustainability and this accreditation is an endorsement of our commitment to CPD.”

“The CPD Accredited Employer Standard has provided our organisation with a tried and tested framework on which our CPD programme can excel. Aligned with our overarching strategic aims, each of the requisite criterion provides a joined-up approach to assessing the CPD needs of our staff and tailoring training events to those needs. Together with Engineers Ireland’s CPD team we have developed a sustainable programme to upskill our people and improve the agility and competitiveness of our organisation.”
