- The Engineering Council (EC) has renewed IAgrE’s professional licences for a further 5 years
- The Society for the Environment has also renewed IAgrE’s licence for 5 years
The EC licence is granted to Professional Engineering Institutions to authorise them to assess applicants for inclusion on the Engineering Council’s register of professional engineers and technicians. The licence gives IAgrE the authority to assess the competence and commitment of candidates for registration as chartered engineer, incorporated engineer and engineering technicians to qualified members.
IAgrE is a founder constituent body of the Society for the Environment (SocEnv), an umbrella body for environmental professionals. It was formed to provide an internationally recognised professional qualification for environmental practitioners (CEnv) and IAgrE is able to offer the award to suitably qualified and experienced members. The Society also recently launched a new qualification REnvP which will provide more individuals with the opportunity to gain professional registration and achieve external verification of their competence.
To qualify for renewal IAgrE was re-assessed by the EC and SocEnv to ensure continuing compliance and that the correct procedures are in place to continually monitor the professional development and conduct of registrants.
From the beginning of this year the IAgrE has experienced a large increase in members applying for professional registration
“IAgrE offers professional recognition to an extraordinarily wide range of people working in the application of science, engineering and technology to the land, whether it is for food or industrial production, amenity or environmental stewardship,” said Charlie Nicklin, IAgrE CEO.
Achieving professional registration can increase a persons’ credibility and career progression and the trend in people wanting to be professionally registered continues to rise confirming registration is an investment in your future.
From technicians to graduates, if you have the requisite qualifications and experience, accreditation is available to the engineering registers (EngTech, IEng, CEng) and as a Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv) and (REnvP). There is no reason why members can’t be recognised as both an engineer and an environmentalist,” he added.
