Casebourne lays down route to membership

ICE Chief Executive Mike Casebourne clarifies questions on becoming qualified raised at the North West association's Graduates and Students evening and at the Reviewers AGM.

GRADUATES part way through initial professional development will be pleased to be assured that they will not be disadvantaged at MPR or AMPR if, instead of changing to the new arrangements, they complete either :

28 Core Objectives and associated documentation as in ICE 101 and ICE 180 for MPR; or

Sectors and Activities plus associated documentation as in ICE 102 for AMPR and can rebate their experience to the new requirements.

Although the Reviews will be conducted in accordance with the new assessment criteria, they will only gently increase in standard from the status quo up to SARTOR 3 over the next three years.

However, many young members working at the heart of industry may feel more confident that Associate Member and IEng best reflect their current career aspiration. They may apply for AMPR even having followed ICE 101 and ICE180 and completed 28 Core Objectives. Associate Membership is an esteemed qualification in its own right, but if your career later develops you will be able to make the transition to Member relatively smoothly.

Of course, if your organisation has re-arranged its training scheme to match the ICE 2000 series and therefore SARTOR3, you will find it easy to swap from the old to the new

Apply quickly as the deadline is upon us but we can stretch it until the end of February.
