Last Friday (21 February) saw 10 engineers from across VolkerFitzpatrick being presented with their EngTech (Engineering Technician) and CEng (Chartered Engineer) professional qualifications by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), at a graduation ceremony in London.
The EngTech qualification is promoted within VolkerFitzpatrick, as a professional qualification, and a stepping stone to IEng (Incorporated Engineer) and CEng (Chartered Engineer). In order to become qualified, our engineers must follow a structured application process, that is run and supported by the business, and involves a written application for review, a presentation and an interview with two engineers allocated by ICE.
To achieve CEng status, a person must demonstrate both their knowledge and ability, via a set of criteria, which covers all aspects of the experience they have gained throughout their professional career. In addition, they also are required to complete a 5,000 word report, followed by a professional review and presentation.
Sally Hill, emerging talent manager, commenting on the achievement: “The dedication shown by all is outstanding. VolkerFitzpatrick runs a fantastic ICE training scheme, and the continued achievements of all our engineers is what drives its success.”
