ICES technical level - apply for free in May

ICE news

APPLICATION TO become a technical grade member of the Institution of Civil Engineering Surveyors (ICES) is being offered to 3000 engineers for free if they take up the offer in May. The offer comes one year after the technical grade of membership was first launched.

The £110 a year annual subscription will still be payable, but the £58 application fee would be waived.

'We're hoping the offer will attract people to join the ICES who perhaps do not know much about it yet, ' said education, training and membership officer Paul Brown.

To qualify as a technical member, candidates should have an approved HNC, HND or NVQ level 3 qualification, have three years' approved experience, or achieved ICES technical competency requirements.

The candidate must also complete a technical member review.

'The original demand for the qualification came from the geospatial or land surveyors who make up to a third of our members. But these account for up to two thirds of the technical members currently registered, ' said Brown.

The qualification recognises the specific technical role of surveyors working in civil engineering, although accounting technicians and other administrators in civil engineering could also become members.

The ICES produces a monthly journal, organises conferences and seminars and offers free technical advice to its members.

Joining the institution also gives members the opportunity to influence ICES committees and boards. The ICES is an associated institution of the ICE.
