Founded in June 2011 through a collaboration between ICE, the Geological Society of London (GSL) and the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IoMMM), membership of RoGEP allows chartered members of these bodies to demonstrate their specialist competencies, elevating their status and differentiating them from other ground engineering professionals.
At the same time RoGEP membership assures clients that a member's technical expertise has been independently and rigorously assessed and demonstrates their commitment to continuous learning and improvement.
RoGEP offers a clear progression route – from professional grade to specialist grade to adviser grade – and is supported by (among others) United Utilities, the Welsh Government and Network Rail.
RoGEP Chair Jim Cook comments: "Breaking through the 500 registrants mark shows that RoGEP is now firmly on the ground engineering map. This in turn will strengthen its members' voice within the industry and help increase standards in the real world."
