The EC(UK) new Standards for Chartered Engineers, Incorporated Engineers and Engineering Technicians, came into effect from 1 March 2004. All candidates applying for membership of The Welding Institute linked to registration will therefore be considered under the new standards.
Full details of the new standards can be found on the Professional and WJS website - www.twi.co.uk/professional or at www.ukspec.org.uk
While the accredited academic requirements are based on SARTOR 3, Licensed Engineering Institutions, such as The Welding Institute, can assess and approve industry-specific qualifications as counting towards the requirements for non-standard candidates. Undertaking further study to enhance your professional development may now be even more advantageous!
