TSJ Continuing Professional Development (CPD) first level course


TSJ CPD Committee Chair

Dr. Yoshiharu Ueyama

TSJ started its first CPD first-level course in 2006. This course is for young engineers who are involved in turbomachinery. So far, 4 series of lecture courses have been completed with great popularity. We are pleased to announce the commencement of the 6th series of the lecture course in Novemeber 2016.



  The objective of the first-level course of lectures is to provide engineers who are engaged in research, developlment, design, manufacture, installation, operation and maintenance of turbomachinery with opportunities to acquire or complement the required basic technology. The background of this activity is the CPD system which Council on Continuing Professional Development, The Japan Federation of Engineering Societies have been creating since the Council was founded in 2005.TSJ's CPD course is organized and carried out based on this purport.

Contents of Lectures, Time and Place

  TSJ's CPD course consists mainly of lecture meetings and seminars. The course is classified broadly into three categories, first level, intermediate level and advanced level. TSJ set up the 5th series of the first level course of lectures, consisting of 18 lectures as shown in Table 1. It will take 2 years for the participant to audit all the 18 lectures. Each lecture takes half day, about 4 (four) hours. It will be held normally at  Ochanomizu Education Center, 5F, TONEGAWA2 Bldg. 1-6-1 Yushima, Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo and/or Osaka Education Center, 1F, Melodyheim. 1-6-8 Hiranomachi, Chuo-ku, Osaka-shi, at the time as shown in Table 1.  Detaled time and place of the CPD course of lectures will appear on TSJ Journal and Home Page of TSJ.

Record of attendance of CPD first level course of lectures

  Your attendance to CPD first-level course of lectures will be recorded by the Secretariat of TSJ in preparation of your future need of CPD history to retain  your qualification.  CPD point to be earned by our CPD lecture is 1 ponit per 1 hour, that is 4 points per 1 lecture.

In accordance with the policy of Council of CPD, TSJ is prepared to accommodate cross certification of CPD points with other Societies and Association with an aim to commonize CPD points.

Fee for the lecture and application proccess

  Fee for the lecture is 10,000 JPY per lecture for the member or the student member of TSJ and 15,000 JPY for non-member.
