New objectives

ICE news

The consolidated 15 'development objectives' are based around developing nine 'attributes' which cover areas such as engineering knowledge, commercial ability, engineering application and implementing design solutions.

'We worked back from the attributes to develop the objectives. And while we've reduced the total number, you can relate the content of the old objectives to the new development objectives very easily, ' said ICE membership director David Lloyd-Roach.

These objectives have a greater emphasis on health, safety, welfare, risk management and sustainable development.

The requirement for site experience is explained in one sentence alongside the list of attributes. It says: 'For those whose experience includes the construction process, site experience will ordinarily be required.' Lloyd-Roach adds that site experience usually went hand in hand with understanding health and safety issues. But he added that it depended on the individual whether these and 'implementation' skills need to come from working on a construction site.
