How to be recognised as a Project Controls professional

If you are an engineer working in the area of Project Controls, Cost Engineering, Estimating, Planning or Commercial Support and want to take your career to the next level, this webinar, which was broadcast on 22 February 2013, outlines the options and what steps to take.

For a considerable period of time, the Cost Engineer, Estimator and Planner (CEE&P) have struggled to demonstrate their professional standing, as they do not fit the professional requirements of many of the professional bodies. This has now been addressed by building an accreditation programme based on the Engineering Council registration standards and the national occupational standards for cost engineering, estimating and planning project control and commercial support.

The webinar looks at:

  • Tiered ACostE Accreditation which maps directly back to IEng and CEng (for practitioners with a limited Engineering background and endorsed by ICEC);
  • Certified Cost Engineer an ICEC (International Cost Engineering Council ) award for the senior practitioners with 10 plus years of experience at a senior level;
  • CEng and IEng via both ACostE and IET awarded under licence from the Engineering Council.

The webinar consists of a presentation on the above topics with a question and answer chat room running in parallel to the broadcast.

The presenters were Nigel Hibberd CEng FACostE AIMechE MAPM and Chairman of Accreditation and Eric McKinnon  CEng MIET and Chairman of the IET Project Controls Network. Both senior members of their respective organisations.
