Two JN Bentley employees have earned the right to add the letters ‘EngTech TMICE’ to their names after qualifying as professional Engineering Technicians with the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE).
JP Smyth and Ryan Walters worked hard to meet the criteria of the qualification whilst maintaining their day-to-day duties as Site Agent and Site Engineer, respectively.
They worked through the various EngTech modules, meeting frequently with their mentors, JP with Project Leader Stella Hughes, and Ryan with Operations Manager Neil Harrison.
The final test came in the form of an interview in front of a panel of industry experts, who signed-off their hard work.
In 2014, JP became the first employee to pass our Civil Engineering Development Programme – and Ryan is now well on the way to completing the programme too.
Speaking to us, Neil Harrison cited JN Bentley’s Development Scheme as having been key to both JP and Ryan achieving the EngTech registration.
“Ryan and JP’s success shows that the training and mentoring on offer through our own Civil Engineering Development Programme has many benefits.
“It’s not only helped Ryan and JP develop the skills we demand of them as Bentley engineers, it has helped them achieve external qualifications and professional memberships like the EngTech too.”
JN Bentley recognises the importance of building and maintaining a happy and skilled workforce, investing over £1 million in training and development every year.
