Withdrawal of Experienced Engineer Pathway and Academic Research Pathway
We’ve made a number of changes this year to help make the process of becoming professionally qualified with ICE as straightforward as possible.
As part of these changes, ICE will stop offering the Experienced Engineer (EEP) and Academic Research (ARP) pathways from 31 December 2015.
But don’t worry, if you’re an experienced engineer or an academic you will still be able to apply for ICE membership. Candidates that aren't on an ICE training scheme or following mentor-supported training should apply for career appraisal to complete their IPD.
We have also recently updated our career appraisal requirements, removing the need for an experience report. Applicants will now need to submit an extended CV (up to 4 sides), the attribute achievement form and appendices.
I've already started my application for EEP or ARP – how does it affect me?
If you have started an application using either the EEP or the ARP route, you can still submit your stage one application up until 31 December 2015.
If you have already completed your stage one application for EEP or ARP, you can continue to your Professional Review using the process from the old membership guidance notes (MGN 49 for EEP, MGN 22 for ARP. These guidance notes are no longer available on the website so please contact us if you need a copy. Please note that there was a slight change to the attributes earlier this year and you should use the new version for your application for professional review.
If you've got a question about any of these changes, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or your local membership support team.
