Questionnaire on Continuing Professional Development

“The Port of London Authority, Company of Watermen & Lightermen and the Thames Skills Academy are working together to develop a Continuous Professional Development (CPD) programme to improve safety on the tidal Thames for today and the future.

Given the unprecedented impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the industry, the PLA is looking to introduce a voluntary CPD programme initially, starting in 2021 to coincide with the renewal of most of the LKEs on the Thames.

Although the questionnaire is only 3 pages, we list a lot of relevant training /skills so that we can hear your views on what to include in the tidal Thames’ Continuous Professional Development programme


We are very grateful for your feedback.

Kind regards
