IPWEAQ is an assessment entity for Civil Engineering including specific areas of expertise for this discipline.
Apply for registration in the areas where you have the most experience and knowledge and ensure your CPD reflects your chosen areas of competence.
We recommend a maximum three areas of competence as otherwise, it becomes difficult for you to provide sufficient evidence in your application and in the assessment interview.
Once approved as an RPEQ, you can identify further
areas of competence without the need for additional assessment, although you will
need to substantiate this via your work experience and CPD if
Collate all the necessary documents - see www.ipwea-qnt.com/rpeq including:
Email the documents to RPEQ Coordinator firstname.lastname@example.org.
If the minimum requirements are met, you can submit the formal application and payment via www.ipwea-qnt.com/rpeq. The RPEQ Coordinator will advise if additional documents are required.
Once submitted, three assessors will be appointed who are expert in the areas of competence on your application.
An assessment interview will be arranged via video conferencing and you will receive a copy of the 11 standard interview questions 24 hours prior to your interview date and time.
If the assessors approve your application, your referees will be contacted to confirm the information provided in your application.
Your application documents and the recording of your interview will be reviewed by IPWEAQ’s RPEQ Assessment Board. Each Board member then approves or declines your application. The majority vote determines the outcome.
If approved, a Letter of Assessment is sent to you by the RPEQ Coordinator.
You then submit the Letter of Assessment to the Board of Professional Engineers of Queensland to apply for RPEQ.
To prepare for your RPEQ application, please ensure you have met the mandatory assessment requirements.
