The renewal process is important to ensure that you’re maintaining your status as a competent, up-to-date and ethical professional engineer. That doesn’t mean it has to be tedious.
The renewal period is three years, and we try to make it as hassle free as possible.

Renewal requirements

  • Updated resumé, detailing experience over the past three years
  • Contact details of one Professional Engineer referee.
  • Completed CPD log with a minimum of 150 hours over the past three years.

Renewal process

  • Step 4: Once your renewal is submitted, an assessor will review the contents and follow-up with either you as the applicant, and/or your referees if further assessment of clarification is required
