IMechE accredits professional development scheme

1 Oct 10

The Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) has accredited our scheme for the professional development of our engineers.  The IMechE is licensed by the Engineering Council to accredit professional development schemes as a monitored way of recording initial professional development, leading towards Chartered Engineers (CEng) or Incorporated Engineers (IEng) registration.

Maximum period of accreditation

We received accreditation for our scheme for the maximum three year period, demonstrating the IMechE's confidence in our professional development scheme.

The IMechE's Professional Development Standards Committee noted that our scheme was "well documented, supported at senior level and highly structured."

Enthusiastic and committed

The IMechE panel also noted that the mentors they interviewed from Aquamarine Power were "enthusiastic and committed to delivering on the objectives of the Scheme", and that developing engineers were of a "high calibre".

David Kaye, our Engineering Manager who leads our professional development scheme said:

"At Aquamarine Power we are committed to the continual professional development of our team, to encouraging high career aspirations and to inspiring individuals to achieve their goals.

"This accreditation by the IMechE is testament to our long-term commitment to attract, develop and maintain our engineering capability.  The observations from the IMechE panel reflect the high level of competence and enthusiasm within the team."
