Scott Harvey, a Senior Technician in the Basingstoke office with 10 years’ worth of AutoCAD experience specialising in producing various highway link, junction, and traffic managements designs, and who plays an important ‘hands-on’ role in a number of projects across the practice, has achieved professional status as an Engineering Technician. Gaining EngTech status gives Scott an engineering qualification that is recognised across the transport profession.
Scott was required to produce a portfolio of evidence to demonstrate his engineering knowledge, design skills, and contribution to the industry, as well as attend a professional review interview at the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation head office in London with two senior highways and transport practitioners.
i-Transport offered support and guidance all the way through the process to enable Scott to successfully complete his application, including regular one-to-ones with his mentor, and also assisted with his preparation for the review meeting by giving him a mock interview with senior members of staff.
Scott says: “I was encouraged by i-Transport to gain professional status through the EngTech route and it gives a sense of recognition and appreciation of my professional achievements to date. It also demonstrates to clients that I have met a nationally recognised standard of engineering competence. Achieving EngTech also helped me gain a promotion to Senior Technician and it has given me the confidence to progress my career further – my long term goal is to become an Incorporated Engineer.”
Encouraging technicians to become EngTech registered shows the value that i-Transport places on staff skills and development at all levels of the business.
