Course Route

A structured training programme will deliver the skills and information required for achievement of an IHE Professional Certificate or Diploma and this can also lay the foundation for Professional Registration.

Firstly, you should decide which level you wish to attain. The IHE offers qualifications at two levels through the course route – Certificate or Diploma. You will then need to attend the dedicated training course. All courses are delivered throughout the year in the clean, contemporary setting of our Birmingham office space and meeting rooms. This centrally located venue in Birmingham Brindleyplace gives excellent connectivity across the UK. Courses are also run at our main London office, regionally and as an in-house option.

You will receive a Certificate of Attendance with CPD just for attending the course. If you wish to apply for the Professional Certificate or Diploma, you will need to successfully complete all assignments and assessments. All Certificate level courses  have an additional day set aside to make an application for EngTech Professional Registration for delegates who have successfully passed their Professional Certificate assignments and assessments to the required standard.

Knowledge Based Route

To achieve the Professional Certificate or Professional Diploma at your chosen level you will normally be expected to attend the training course and successfully complete all assignments/assessments in each core competency module, together with a number of subject specific competencies, depending on which award you are looking to achieve.

Professional Certificates or Professional Diplomas can also be achieved by candidates who feel they have sufficient skills, training and experience and can demonstrate this by submitting an Individual Portfolio of Evidence, which documents how they have achieved the competencies required.

Full details of competencies, assessment and awards and the course submission packs can be found on each individual course page.
