We are pleased to announce that Juan Sevillano and Ferdinando Aloi have successfully achieved UK Chartered Engineer status through the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), following the Exemption and Recognition Panel’s approval of their application via the European Directive route to membership. We are delighted they have succeeded in obtaining Chartership.

We also congratulate Zak Mahmud and João Silva who have completed their Initial Professional Development (IPD) under Rendel’s ICE Training Scheme; demonstrating that they have achieved the required level in all 9 Attributes to be able to undertake the Chartered Professional Review. This has also been formally signed off by the ICE’s Membership Development Officer, Katherine Warner. Zak and João will now start preparing to undertake the Professional Review in April 2020.

Rendel is an ICE approved employer, operating an ICE Training Scheme, providing structured training towards Chartership. We have three Operational Board Directors who act as Supervising Civil Engineers to oversee the ICE Training Programme. In 2019 we had thirteen engineers on this scheme, and this will grow by over 50% in the coming year.

Rendel’s graduate training scheme has been shortlisted in the 2019 Construction News Awards in the Graduate Initiative category. This year four of our engineers were signed off from their Training Agreements. In 2018, Rendel launched its first apprenticeship training scheme with the National College for Advanced Transport & Infrastructure (formerly known as National College for High Speed Rail).
