Faster professional review route planned

ICE news

THE TIME it takes to sit and pass the chartered professional review will be halved, ICE president professor Adrian Long said last month.

Speaking to graduate engineers, Long promised that the ICE's ongoing work to produce simpler and more transparent procedures for all grades of membership would cut by 50% the time it takes to prepare for the professional review.

Long is keen to cut down on the administration that the current system creates, so that young graduates can better fit in their preparation for the professional review around their working commitments.

At present less than 20% of successful applicants at the professional review are 27 or under, with the average age of successful applicants approaching 29.

By cutting the time taken, the average age of successful applicants would be reduced to 25 or 26 - or three to four years of initial professional development.

The ICE's Project Slim (Simple look into membership) will make recommendations to Council.
