The Institute of Corrosion has developed a programme to assist Engineers and Technicians obtain their Chartered Status.
The Society of Environmental Engineers (SEE) in an agreement with the Institute of Corrosion, has been licensed by the Engineering Council to confer registration as a Chartered Engineer(CEng), Incorporated Engineer (IEng) or Engineering Technician (TechEng). The Engineering Council sets standards for competence and commitment to become registered as set out in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC). The Institute of Corrosion has interpreted these standards and developed the professional competences required for registration. Chartered Engineer status demonstrates the achievement of a high-level education, the ability to practise the profession at a recognised level, and the maintenance and continued progression of engineering competencies.
The objectives of this programme are to support ICorr members to reach the required competency levels in the field of corrosion engineering to obtain Chartered Engineer status via a “Mentoring” approach to assess competency and advise development programmes to reach CEng. The benefits to Engineers and Technicians are, mentor guidance from an industry professional, competency assessment from a Chartered Engineer, a development programme via the competency matrix. Once a suitable mentor is appointed and the competency matrix completed a program is developed to assist the candidate towards the Chartered status goal. This could include suggested training, site visits, conference involvement or assistance in completion of the application and guidance for the PRI.
Who Should Apply? Engineers who have graduated and have completed 2 years in Industry, any member of ICorr who believes they are ready to progress to CEng, and mature engineers who have the experience but lower academic qualifications.
