Efficient use of resources is necessary for the continued survival of the human race, but to get there, continuous learning is even more necessary. It is heart-warming to study the results of this survey as what stands out most is that energy professionals have taken ownership of their own personal development where two-thirds of respondents fund their training needs themselves.

Professionals qualify from institutions that are formed and shaped by similar principles and practices around the world. Most qualifications carry more or less much the same value when compared with each other. To be successful in career and life, the survival of the fittest comes into play.

Energy engineering professionals that actively develop an array of soft skills, business skills, together with advancing and keeping their technical skills current will elevate themselves above their peers through continuous learning.
