Before the webinar we had a number of other questions which were submitted. They are below with the answers:
What are the most important benefits of Projects controls to Engineers in the competitive marketplace?
I am a MACostE, how can I access to CEng (RCostE(Registered))?
Answer: ACostE has 3 routes to professional status depending on the background and prior qualifications:
I am a corporate member of the Australian Institute of Quantity Surveyors but cannot attend as I will be oversea on holidays but wish to be recognised as a Project Controls Professional
What are the basic qualifications which I should have? What are the facilities we have to obtain this status within Sri Lanka?
Answer: The whole Tiered accreditation is based around the UK National Occupational standards of which we use 40. If you have no Qualifications you would undergo on-line assessment (e Qual) of 20 units for ICostE plus interview and level pack which benchmarks you to IEng requirements. To get to Certified Professional level a further 5 Differentiated units are assessed plus another professional interview and a further level pack which benchmarks you to CEng requirements
If you have a suitable engineering or QS based Degree or similar eg a QCF Level 5 Diploma in the UK, this allows you to enter higher up the accreditation Framework/ reduces the number of units you need to be assessed against. We do not take Qualifications on their own you have to demonstrate hands on Cost Engineering, Estimating or Planning experience for a suitable period commensurate with your target accreditation Level
For Certified Cost Engineer it is unlikely unless you have a degree and have practiced Cost Engineering, Estimating or Planning at a very senior level for several years we would consider you, as ready to apply for that
