Professional Practice: Personal Development Plan and Continuous Professional Development
Professionals should create a personal development plan for self-analysis, reflection, and assessing strengths and shortcomings to prepare for their future career path properly. The procedure offers crucial data for comprehending the profession’s abilities and knowledge and identifying potential future development areas. Additionally, planning creates a route that governs the way of future development and progress (Cottrell, 2015). Professional development is essential for chartered members to meet the demands of their jobs and the high standards of practice. People should self-analyze and evaluate strengths and shortcomings to determine their current knowledge status as they plan for their future professional progress, even though they may feel ready for practice.

I’ve acquired risk management expertise that I can use in an environmental organization. I have completed a five-year nuclear engineering undergraduate program (Radiation Protection). I now possess the information necessary to work in a setting that deals with radiation protection risk management. I’ve started taking a post-graduate course in environmental management. I’ve received the education and training necessary to start working. However, as I become ready to work in the demanding risk management environment, I intend to keep learning to gain more knowledge in the two fields.
