RPA received the highly regarded Engineers Ireland CPD Accredited Employer award in April 2011 following an audit of RPA's lifelong learning and development practises for their engineering professionals. The CPD Accredited Employer award denotes an organisation which has good systems and practices to allow its engineering staff to grow, learn and develop, throughout their career.
Speaking on behalf of RPA, Ger Hannon, Director of Corporate Services said that the Agency was delighted with the award. Mr. Hannon said “RPA sees the award of CPD Accredited Employer with Engineers Ireland as a very significant endorsement of our approach to continuing professional development. It’s very encouraging that the standards which we have introduced in our business are recognised externally and we look forward to deriving as much benefit as possible from the opportunities which this prestigious accreditation will bring. RPA has built a reputation for the delivery of excellence in major infrastructural projects such as the Luas network and this award is a welcome boost.”
