Why should I become an ARPEng?
Australia’s states are introducing professional registration schemes for engineers. The Queensland Professional Engineers Act has been in operation since 2002 and Victoria has introduced the Professional Engineers Registration Bill 2019 to align with the Queensland scheme.
As a result of these Acts, engineers will need to be registered if they provide “professional engineering services”.
The schemes have been founded on the principle that a minimum level of qualifications, experience and continuing professional development are required to carry out professional engineering services. The AIRAH Registered Professional Engineer accreditation scheme has been developed to meet these requirements.
A successful application to become an ARPEng will display to the industry – and to the public at large – your qualifications and commitment to the discipline. An ARPEng designation confirms that your skills, professional development and training are up-to-date, and that you are a qualified professional.
How long does an ARPEng accreditation last for?
Accreditation lasts for three years, contingent on ongoing CPD activities (150 hours of CPD over a three-year period, with a minimum of 50 hours each year) and adherence to AIRAH Membership and AIRAH Registered Professional Engineer By-Laws
You must reapply every three years to retain your ARPEng accreditation.
