Professional Review

This page explains how the Professional Review process works. Find out what you'll have to do for the submission stage and on the day of your Professional Review, where you can sit your review, and how much it costs.

This is where you prove that you’ve developed all the skills, knowledge and experience needed to become a professionally qualified member.

Your Professional Review includes the review submission and review day.You'll be assessed by two experienced civil engineers (your reviewers).

Professional Review submission

You’ll need to send us several documents, including your Professional Review report, CV and continuing professional development (CPD) records.

Your Professional Review report should describe how you have the attributes needed to become professionally qualified. It will need to go into detail about your skills, knowledge and experience, including the projects you’ve worked on and the responsibility you've had.

Professional Review day

This involves three activities: a presentation, an interview and a communications task, which take place on the same day.

  • Presentation – this is an opportunity for you to go into more detail on particular topics covered in your review report
  • Interview – your reviewers will ask you about various aspects of your report to make sure you've achieved the attributes you need
  • Communication task – you will be set a communication task by your reviewers. The communications task will take place after your interview and you will be informed of the timing of this in your notification letter. The communications task will be based on current issues within the industry and you will be expected to respond as an engaged civil engineer, not a technical expert.
