Training and Personal Development; Keith Jones, Director of the Institution of Civil Engineers Wales Cymru, Says Continued Training and Development Is Vitally Important


THE Institution of Civil Engineers is the world's leading professional civil engineering institution with around 85,000 members worldwide and more than 3,600 members in Wales. ICE is ideally placed to take the lead in these matters.

It is vital to ensure that our members are well qualified. While training budgets can regrettably be limited when cuts are considered, it is very important to ensure that we are all trained and maintain our professional development.

It takes a long time to 'grow an engineer' and we must all play our part. We must not only consider our own professional development and support but encourage others with their training.

There are many opportunities available to get professionally qualified. Universities and colleges are promoting ICE accredited courses. We are very fortunate in Wales to have the leading universities and colleges with civil engineering and construction courses.

Help and assistance is available to all with a network of ICE member support and development staff. We will be delighted to meet you and discuss your training and professional development at suitable venues across Wales.

Grades of membership are: Student: free for those studying their first academic course, ice.org.uk/student Graduate: for those with an accepted qualification and the ideal stepping stone to becoming a professionally qualified engineer. Technician member EngTech: TMICE - awarded to a wide range of technicians practising in the broad area of civil engineering.
