ICE accredits professional development scheme

17 Feb 12 - David Kaye, Engineer Manager

We were delighted to receive confirmation last month that the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) had formally accredited Aquamarine Power's scheme for the professional development of our engineers.

The ICE is licensed by the Engineering Council to accredit professional development schemes leading towards Chartered Engineer registration.

Our Structural Engineer Jon Hancock will lead the training of our civil engineers under the scheme following his approval by the ICE as a supervising civil engineer.

This accreditation shows that Aquamarine Power's training scheme is now recognised by two world class engineering Institutions. In 2010, our training scheme received accreditation by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), where it was noted the scheme was "well documented, supported at senior level and highly structured," and that developing engineers were of a "high calibre".

Aquamarine Power recognises the importance of training young engineers for the future of our company and to provide the next generation of leaders in the industry.
