About this event

If you are considering sitting for your Professional Review in the near future, this event offers a unique opportunity to learn from two very experienced and well-accomplished geotechnical engineers, both currently ICE Reviewers, providing practical guidance on how to approach the Professional Review and interpret the ICE guidelines into the geotechnical field.

David Beadman will talk about how to achieve different attributes and demonstrate competence at the Professional Review while Peter Rutty will give tips on how to avoid potential pitfalls and advise on RoGEP (Register of Ground Engineering Professionals) qualifications.

These presentations will be followed by a short mock review including a presentation, an interview with a recent successful geotechnical engineer and a Question & Answer session with David, Peter and other recent successful candidates.

Thanks are extended to WSP for hosting the event and for providing refreshments following the lecture.
