Of Training in Ensuring Vital Role O a Properly Qualified Profession; Keith Jones, Director of the Institution of Civil Engineers Wales Cymru, Says That Continued Training and Development Is Vitally Important

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.
