Faced with the energy efficiency challenges, climate change and the competitiveness of the 21st century, the European Union is committed to mitigate its energy consumption by 20% by 2020 [1]. This in turn presents obstacles in the area of continuing professional development of practising engineers; especially when competing for green jobs on the European market. The advancement of globalisation has meant that even small and medium engineering enterprises are recruiting engineers on foreign markets. We will determine how the systems within the engineering regulatory bodies across Europe are aiming to facilitate mobility of professional engineers for sustainable jobs. While considering the assessment of professional competencies, we aim to achieve more transparency within a system of custom and practice but also promote lifelong learning and up-skilling performances in this area of research.
