Abstract

With changes taking place within the construction industry, the quantity surveyor's
role has significantly evolved. The Board of Quantity Surveyors (BoQS) Malaysia
believes that CPD as one of the fundamental processes to confront this challenge and
have made CPD compulsory for all its members.
Notwithstanding the numerous provisions and initiatives mooted to encourage BoQS
members to participate, there have been critics that suggest the CPD provisions
offered have somewhat inadequate and ineffective. It was acknowledged that BoQS
and its partner organizations such as the Institution of Surveyors Malaysia and others
have considered many options and tried to provide wide ranging activities within the
CPD provisions to meet the CPD needs of all their members. However, there is a
lack of research to ascertain if this have been successful and there is little data to
ascertain the extent to which the CPD offered has been effective. It is recognition for
the need to address this that this research was undertaken. It provides a systematic
analysis of the response of the members to the CPD initiatives promoted, with view
for improvements. The context of the research was developed based on the concepts
of education, training, development underpinned by learning. The focus of the
investigations was on identifying the how the BoQS members respond to the CPD
offered.
It emerge the BoQS members generally have a certain preference and reason for their
CPD activities. While most agree the need for them to learn and continually
improve, in the main, they conceive the CPD offered as primarily a means to fulfill
the requirements of their professional membership. This raises some fundamental
issues concerning the appreciation of learning from the CPD offered as a means for
them improve by learning from these activities. This is discussed at the end of the
report together with recommendations for further research.
