Engineers Australia's calendar of activity for young engineers contains two pieces of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) content each month created to support, develop and grow early career engineers. The calendar is made up of three series: the YEA Professional Skills Series, YEA Data Visualisation Series and the YEA Collaboration Series.
YEA Professional Skills Series
The Young Engineers Professional Development series has been put together exclusively by young engineers for young engineers and is designed to support you on your career journey into the professional world.
The series aims to provide educational content that bridges the gap between what you learn at university and what you need to know in the workplace by delivering learning opportunities that you can practically apply on the job.
YEA Data Visualisation Series
In our increasingly data-driven world, it’s more important than ever to have accessible ways to view and understand data. The demand for data skills in employees is increasing each year and it is becoming essential for employees to understand data and its impact and to develop the skills and ability to present data to non-technical audiences.
YEA Collaboration Series
The YEA Collaboration Series has been created to provide young engineers with insights into how they can effectively interact with other professions within the scope of their day-to-day roles.
It is designed to provide practical tips, reference points and takeaways that can be used to help facilitate more constructive communication and interaction.

Keeping an online record of your CPD just got easier. Engineers Australia has upgraded its online CPD recording platform to simplify how you keep your logs up-to-date and ready for your next audit.

Difficult conversations role play scenarios:
1. Your manager has unrealistic expectations of you. They want you to manage a project beyond your experience. They want the project delivered in an unrealistic time frame. You call a meeting with them to discuss.
2. Your manager has a casual attitude. Not well organised. Over talks in meetings with irrelevant information. The current project is falling behind. You need your manager to be better organised. You call a meeting with them to discuss
