Professional Registration - CEng, CEnv etc.

The Institute recognises the professional competence of practitioners involved in all technologies associated with materials, minerals and mining through Competent Person Registration (CPR). To find out about the benefits of CPR, check out the video through the link above - What does registration mean for me?

The Institute is licenced to award CPR against the following standards:

Engineering:

Chartered Engineer (CEng) - requires the minimum of a Level 7 qualification such as a Masters' degree with 4 to 5 years appropriate working experience and to hold the MIMMM grade.

Incorporated Engineer (IEng) - requires the minimum of a Level 6 qualification such as a Bachelor's degree with 3 years appropriate working experience and to hold the AIMMM or MIMMM grade.

Engineering Technician (EngTech) - requires the minimum of a Level 3 qualification such as a OND with 2 years appropriate working experience and to hold the TIMMM, AIMMM or MIMMM grade.

Where an individual commenced their studies on an accredited course before September 1999, the qualification thresholds are: CEng-Level 6; IEng-Level 5; and EngTech-Level 2.

Environment:

Chartered Environmentalist (CEnv) - requires the minimum of a Level 7 qualification such as a Masters' degree with 4 to 5 years appropriate working experience and to hold the MIMMM grade.

Science:

Chartered Scientist (CSci) - requires the minimum of a Level 7 qualification such as a Masters' degree with 4 to 5 years appropriate working experience and to hold the MIMMM grade.

Registered Scientist (RSci) - requires the minimum of a Level 5 qualification such as a HND with 3 years appropriate working experience and to hold the AIMMM or MIMMM grade.

Registered Science Technician (RSciTech) - requires the minimum of a Level 3 qualification such as a OND with 2 years appropriate working experience and to hold the TIMMM, AIMMM or MIMMM grade.

Where an individual does not hold the qualifications necessary for the level of registration they would like to apply for, the Institute has available two routes which will allow them to demonstrate that they have the necessary knowledge and understanding, which they will have gained through their professional work and experience or by some other means. These are as follows:

Engineers - Technical Report Route

Environmentalists and Scientists - Equivalence Route

Both routes require the individual to write a report through which they have to demonstrate a series of learning outcomes at an appropriate level. More information on the Techncial Report Route is given in the guide which can be downloaded at the bottom of this page; information on the Equivalence Route is available from the Membership Department.

Guides for the various levels of CPR, application forms and experience recording templates can be downloaded at the bottom of this page. Prospective applicants are advised in the first instance to read the Guide relating to the Professional Registration they are interested in applying for. If they have any subsequent questions, these should be directed to the Institute using the details below.

Registration Workshops

The Institute offers mentoring workshops to support those with the requisite amount of experience to achieve CPR. These are normally held at Institute offices in the UK, but the Institute is happy to provide sessions to groups of members at their place of work or other venues. The Institute will however be holding these virtually for the forseeable future.

Our future programme is:

'CEng in a day'

9 April 2020

21 April 2020

26 May 2020

29 May 2020 - Technical Report Route - FULLY BOOKED

23 June 2020

'CEnv in a day'

10 June 2020

'CSci in a day'

12 May 2020

Each workshop is structured such that participants are application submission ready, or as close as to it possible by the end of the session.

If you would like to participate in a workshop or have any questions, please contact us on membership@iom3.org or use our Membership Enquiry Form. Alternatively you can telephone us on +44 (0) 1476 515761.

Register of Ground Engineering Professionals (ROGEP)

The Institute is a member of the Ground Forum, an organisation that represents 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. Institute members can apply for admission to the ROGEP at the same time they apply for CPR. If individuals choose to apply later in their career, a separate application measuring their attributes will be required. If you wish to apply for admittance to the ROGEP, please tick the appropriate box on the application form.
