IHE Extends Free Professional Reviews throughout 2024

  • Monday January 8, 2024
The IHE is delighted to announce an extension of its FREE Professional Reviews throughout the year 2024. Building upon the positive response to the 2023 initiative, where members could apply for free Professional Reviews at EngTech, ICTTech, RITTech, Advanced RITTech, IEng, CEng & CITP levels, this extension is a testament to another successful year for the Institute.
The decision to continue offering free reviews in 2024 was made by the IHE’s full Council, following an increase in the uptake of Professional Reviews during the previous year. This followed another successful year for the Institute in securing good financial results over the last twelve months, as well as achieving an increase in the total membership numbers. This provides the IHE leadership the opportunity to continue its initiative in providing wider support to its members where possible.
The IHE remains dedicated to providing support to its members, and this extension reflects its ongoing commitment to fostering professional growth and development within the highways industry.
Please note: This offer does not apply to members who are resubmitting their application if they have been unsuccessful.
