Continuing education for professionals (CEP) may be defined as the formal or informal training an individual professional undertakes after the end of his basic professional education. Despite the implicit relationship between professionalism and CEP, continuing education has long been a tangential concern in the study of professional education. As it is, CEP is a complex phenomenon with different forms of organization, varying methods of delivering instruction, and numerous methods for acquiring financial support. Many professions have shown an interest in improving CEP, and there is some awareness that the original professional education will have to be planned with continuing education in mind. New recognition of the need for CEP to serve several purposes (changing licensure regulations, technological advances, and changing personal goals as well as professionalism) is apparent in such fields as psychology and engineering, and its importance is recognized in medicine as well. Programs underway suggest that future CEP efforts will focus on techniques by which individuals can assess needs and prescribe learning activities by evaluation of their own practice. Also in the wings is more debate over the question of legally mandated CEP. (An extensive bibliography is included.) (Author/MSE)
