IHE Membership

Join us and demonstrate your technical skills, qualifications and expertise to clients and employers. We offer membership types for highways professionals at every stage of their career.

Professional Registration

Becoming a professionally registered engineer demonstrates your high standard of competence and commitment. By choosing to register, you set yourself apart as an engineer with high standards and also demonstrate your commitment to maintain that competence in the future.

Academy Training

The IHE Highway Engineering Academy offers industry-led training in highway engineering. Through one of our specialist training courses leading to an industry-recognised Professional Certificate or Diploma, the HEA delivers the qualifications, skills and knowledge demanded by the highways industry which are in short supply today.

IHE signs PDP with the Kiely Bros

  • Monday November 20, 2023

The Institute is pleased to announce that it has signed a PDP agreement with the Kiely Bros. Kiely Bros is a family run business who have been established since the 1950s and provide surface treatments, pre-patching solutions and other ancillary activities across the UK. 

The agreement was signed by IHE Chief Executive Steve Spender at the company’s offices and depot based in Birmingham, where he had the opportunity to spend time with some members of staff that we hope will benefit from the new collaboration agreement between the two organisations. 

On signing the agreement Steve Spender said, “The institute is pleased to welcome Kiely Bros as our latest PDP partner, and we look forward to working with the organisation in supporting their staff in the provision of training and where possible supporting them in seeking professional registration”. 

Ash Howard who is responsible for training and staff development for the organisation and who signed the agreement on behalf of Kiely Bros commented, “We are really pleased to be signing this agreement with the IHE as the next step in supporting our staff in their training and development. We look forward to working with the IHE in encouraging our staff to take up membership of the Institute and help them to develop the necessary skills and competencies to progress towards professional registration”.
