Alternative routes to registration

If you do not hold the qualifications required for the level of registration you would like to apply for, there are two routes available for you to demonstrate that you have gained the equivalent academic level in the workplace or by some other means. These are:

  • Engineers - Technical Report Route (TRR)
  • Environmentalists and Scientists - Equivalence Route (EQR)

Both routes require a written report that demonstrates a series of learning outcomes at the appropriate level.
More information on the TRR is given in the guide which can be downloaded at the bottom of this page; for the EQR please contact the IOM3 Membership Team.

 

Other registers

Register of Ground Engineering Professionals (ROGEP)

IOM3 is a member of the Ground Forum, an organisation representing the professional bodies and trade associations within the ground engineering discipline. Given the professional, environmental, societal and financial magnitude of related projects, the Ground Forum has developed a register of ground engineering professionals - the ROGEP - which enables external stakeholders and other professionals to identify competent and specialist practitioners in this field.

IOM3 members can apply for admission to the ROGEP at the same time as they apply for any chartered registration.  Please indicate this on the application form for professional registration. If you choose to apply later in your career, a separate application measuring your attributes will be required.

European Engineer (EUR ING)

The EUR ING title is available through FEANI, a federation of professional engineers that unites national engineering associations from 32 European Higher Education Area (EHEA) countries. FEANI represents the interests of over 6 million professional engineers in Europe.
