MEMBERSHIP WORKSHOP07 December 2009

Mike Silvester FCInstCES, MInstRE

Geospatial Representative

ICES (UAE) Region


Before we start

This is YOUR workshop

In order to get the most out of it – we want you to ask lots of questions.

Wait for a relevant pause in the presentation, stick your hand up and shout out.

If you don’t take this opportunity to ask questions then we are not making the most effective use of our time

Before We Start


Aim of the workshop

The aim of this workshop is to give you guidance on the detailed ICES requirements for a Membership Application.

and

To ultimately gain additional Members for the ICES UAE Region

Aim of the Workshop


The main question of the evening
The Main Question of the evening? detailed ICES requirements for a Membership Application.


The main question of the evening1

At what level should I be aiming for? detailed ICES requirements for a Membership Application.

Technical Member or

Member?

The Main Question of the evening?


Technical member or member

Please read the Handout in your Membership Pack detailed ICES requirements for a Membership Application.

Technical Member or Member?


It is suffice to say that

The two appropriate grades that are available for membership for surveyors at the initial stages are that of Technical Member and Member.

It is suffice to say that everyone has their own individual level of Competence and Experience in life and therefore in the end it is up to the individual which he or she chooses to apply for.

It is Suffice to Say that


However

From a CICES point of view, the development route for any candidate would be to attain the grade of Technical Member first and then the Membership Grade at a later date.

HOWEVER


So i make no apologies 1

Due to the Membership database indicating that there are many applying for the first time. We are going to concentrate on obtaining the Grade of

TECHNICAL MEMBER

(TCInstCES)

So - I make no apologies # 1


The ladder

Fellow FCInstCES many applying for the first time. We are going to concentrate on obtaining the Grade of

Corporate Member MCInstCES

Technical Member TCInstCES

Graduate Member GCInstCES

Affiliate Member N/A

Student Member N/A

The Ladder


A Technical Member of the “Chartered Institute of Civil Engineering Surveyors” is a well respected grade and excellent foundation for your future aspirations within the Institution


Technical membership definition

“A Technical Member is classed as someone who can be sent out in the field or office and do his or her job at an optimum standard to the best of their ability with the minimum of supervision”

Technical MembershipDefinition


A good stepping stone at this stage is to become an affiliate member

Fellow FCInstCES out in the field or office and do his or her job at an optimum standard to the best of their ability with the minimum of supervision”

Corporate Member MCInstCES

Technical Member TCInstCES

Graduate Member GCInstCES

Affiliate Member N/A

Student Member N/A

A good Stepping Stone (at this stage) is to become an Affiliate Member


Note that

The process of making an application for Technical Member or Corporate Member are very similar.

The additional requirements can be discussed with a member of the committee after this workshop.

Note That


I make no apologies 2

Similarly the workshop will not be concentrating on whether you are of the Geospatial or Commercial Discipline.

It will be a Generic Workshop as the application guidelines are the same whichever discipline you may be.

I make no apologies # 2


I do make an apology

To any of you who have turned up to this workshop thinking that all they have to do is turn up and fill in a couple of forms to become a Member.

I do make an apology


I do make an apology1

To any of you who have turned up to this workshop thinking that all they have to do is turn up and fill in a couple of forms to become a Member.

FACT

It is going to take a lot of time and hard work. The average application period from start to finish can take anything up to six months.

I do make an apology


Any Questions? that all they have to do is turn up and fill in a couple of forms to become a Member.

Continuing professional development

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is the systematic maintenance, improvement and broadening of knowledge and skills, together with the development of personal qualities, necessary for the execution of professional and technical duties throughout a Surveyors working life.

CONTINUING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT


The objectives of cpd

The objectives of CPD are related to improving work related performance, enhancing career prospects, increasing the capacity for learning, encouraging participation and commitment to lifelong learning and being adaptable to, and prepared for, changes in industry.

CPD is an essential element in any profession. Failure to keep up-to-date with advances in discipline, technology and changes in legislation could have significant repercussions for an individual practitioner, a company and a professional organisation.

The Objectives of CPD


Personal benefits of cpd 1

To have documentary evidence to demonstrate commitment to your chosen profession and professional development.

Demonstrable commitment to CPD will help enhance career development opportunities and differentiate you in an application for employment.

To have a comprehensive and up-to-date record of the training and development activities that you have undertaken and your achievements.

From this record, you can review your CPD activities in order to identify shortcomings and consider future training and development requirements to overcome this.

Personal Benefits of CPD 1


Personal benefits of cpd 2

The opportunity to exploit change within the profession and not be driven by it.

To identify personal and professional skills and competencies that could be of assistance to other parties.

To broaden and demonstrate your skills, knowledge, understanding and competence through participation in a range of learning experiences, individually or as part of a learning community.

To have an excellent reference document from which you can prepare a curriculum vitae, recall details of topics that you have studied and reflect upon these for the purposes of appraisals and interviews.

Personal Benefits of CPD 2


Ices cpd policy statement

Members of the Institution have a professional duty to develop the skills and knowledge base of themselves and other practitioners within the profession.

The Institution’s definition of CPD is widely drawn and not prescriptive; so as to remain flexible enough to be relevant to all members at all career stages.

It is, therefore, for individual members to choose an approach to CPD that will satisfy their own personal and professional needs and aspirations.

Members should ensure that their CPD is managed in such a way as to be credible to other interested parties and will bring credit to the profession.

A DEGREE OF ARTISTIC LICENCE IS THEREFORE ACCEPTABLE

ICES CPD Policy Statement

Some CPD Examples 1


Some cpd examples 2

Self teaching of a method to set out and install Perimeter Edge Beams which formed the framework for the Bow Trusses and ultimately the glass. Different configuration of beams were supplied depending on the size and location of the teardrop this included 14 beams, 26 beams and for the largest teardrops 28 beams each including 1 apex piece. Trail and error was initially used until a working procedure was adopted as no one on site had had any experience on such a task. Each Bracket and Joint on an individual beam had to be within the tolerance of ± 10mm, the most difficult part therefore was to install the initial bottom beams to the x, y and z planes. Once this was completed each beam was installed, adjusted and tack welded to the brackets as the structure was built upwards. It is to be noted that due to heat expansion the only time when you could get a true reading was as early in the morning as possible, for the rest of the day the beam had to be set out in the opposite direction to the expansion. Once the beams and the final apex was completed thus completing the shape, an as built survey was carried out all at the same time. This was carried out by “setting out” each point thus enabling to experience the errors in the field and then downloading the data through Prolink and exporting to an excel spreadsheet for the clients records.

Some CPD Examples 2


A word about cpd events

We never see people from the Geospatial Engineering Discipline at Commercial Management CPD Events – and Vice Versa.

It is within the Competencies to know the business of the Institution – this includes awareness of your opposite discipline’s role.

Experience report

The experience report is an opportunity to demonstrate the depth of your knowledge, understanding, competence and experience using a description of a particular project.

An example of an experience report can be obtained from the membership department on request or via the Institution website.

Applicants are urged to use their own judgement in the presentation and format of their experience report.

The Experience report for Technical membership should each be approximately 1,000 words in length.

EXPERIENCE REPORT


What is an experience report

The experience report is an opportunity to demonstrate the depth of your knowledge, understanding, competence and experience using a description of a particular project.

What is an Experience Report?


Why is there a requirement for an experience report

It is one of the requirements for Technical Membership. depth of your knowledge, understanding, competence and experience using a description of a particular project.

It forms the basis of the ICES Technical Member Review at the end of the application process.

Further to the above, it gives the examiner a subject that you are skilled at to discuss at interview stage and make sure that indeed YOU wrote the report (and did not indeed download it off of the internet!)

Why is there a requirement for an Experience Report?


Experience report requirements

The report can be on depth of your knowledge, understanding, competence and experience using a description of a particular project.ANY subject relevant to Geospatial Engineering or Commercial Management.

An existing report previously prepared by the candidate (and the candidate only) on a recent project may be used or developed.

The detailed experience report for Technical membership (as a guideline) should be approximately 1,000 words in length.

Experience Report Requirements


Experience report requirements1

The Guide to membership pamphlet states that an example of an experience report can be obtained from the membership department on request or via the Institution website.

“I have however contacted ICES Headquarters who only have examples of Experience Reports for application to the grade of Member.”

The text goes on to state that, “Applicants are urged to use their own judgement in the presentation and format of their experience report.”

So again, it is fair to say that for an Experience Report for Technical Membership:

A DEGREE OF ARTISTIC LICENCE IS THEREFORE ACCEPTABLE

If the reader then requires further information on a particular topic he can then turn to the appropriate page.

Summary


Background

The background should give the reader some idea about the history of the area or the build up of events that lead to the requirement of the survey. It should be fairly brief, not too technical but interesting.

Background


The Aim should state exactly what was hoped to be achieved from the survey or the overall project.

Aim


Location

After reading the location the reader should be in no doubt as to the exact area of the survey or task.

You can use Maps / Plans / Google Earth to help describe where the Survey took place.

Use a link to an Annex

Location


Method of survey or scope of works

The meat of the Experience Report as to the exact area of the survey or task.

Under this heading the author must try and give as much information as possible so that the reader can assess the work that has been carried out.

Some (Random) points to consider when compiling the method of survey are as follows:

Method of Survey (or Scope of Works)


Method of survey or scope of works1

Type of control used. as to the exact area of the survey or task.

How the control was established.

What equipment was used.

How any detail (if applicable) was collected.

What accuracies were achieved by the methods used.

Where were levelling datum's established.

Any major obstacles that had to be overcome.

Method of Survey (or Scope of Works)


Method of survey or scope of works2

Method of Survey (or Scope of Works)


Difficulties

On the next slide is a list of topics that may cause difficulties when carrying out a survey task. If difficulties have been encountered then state what they were and how, or how not they were overcome.

Someone else who may read your report later on will then be pre-warned about the problems that they may face.

Difficulties


Difficulties1

Type of terrain. difficulties when carrying out a survey task. If difficulties have been encountered then state what they were and how, or how not they were overcome.

Weather conditions.

Lack of manpower

Inexperience or lack of knowledge.

Access to the site.

Lack of equipment.

Damage to equipment.

Difficulties


Recommendations

If you have any valid recommendations to make about the survey task, e.g. adopt different methods, use different equipment or carry out the survey at a particular time of the year, then say so but give good reasons to support your recommendations.

It could be also worthwhile recommending that your work be used for any future planning or works. (but only if you consider your work to be of a sufficient standard!)

Recommendations


Conclusions

Was the task a success? Was it of value in trade training and man management? Would it benefit others in the future?

These are some of the items that can be included in the conclusions.

You should always state what your conclusions were about the task.

Conclusions


Annexes

Annexes should be cross referenced throughout the report. and man management? Would it benefit others in the future?

I suggest that the naming system used to indicate Annexes is by using Letters rather than numbers:

For Example:

A Location Map indicating the position of the Site can be seen at Annex A

Annexes


Experience report guidelines

Use the Header function to repeat the Experience Report Title on each page.

Use the Footer function to identify the page numbers / dates and file name on each page.

Get the report bound and put together professionally.

Experience Report Guidelines


Experience report guidelines1

It goes without saying that the Experience Report (in fact everything in the application) is to be written in English.

Your Sponsor should certainly be reading each report for every application prior to signing off the Application Forms

Remember that for the next upgrade to that of “Member” there is a requirement for another more comprehensive Experience Report on a completely different subject.

Therefore you should make sure that you save your most favourable experience for this future upgrade.

Detailed cv requirements

The Detailed CV for Technical membership should be approximately 1,000 words in length.

The Detailed CV for Technical Membership must indicate a true reflection of projects that you have been involved with during your career.

Detailed CV Requirements


Detailed cv guidelines

“The people in HR state that a CV should never be longer than 2 pages”

Personally this has always frustrated me. Due the nature of the diverse taskings carried by us as Land Surveyors - 2 pages never seem enough to describe what we actually do.

This is your chance to really express what you have done in your career in as many pages as you see fit.

Detailed CV Guidelines


Detailed cv guidelines1

What we want you to do is go into more detail about each individual job that you have been involved in.

Take your current CV and do a “word count” in Microsoft Word (Remember that there is a requirement for 1000 words). This will give you a gauge on how much work you need to do.

Detailed CV Guidelines


Final guidelines

We are required to produce Experience Reports / Detailed CVs that are only 1000 words long – this when you think only covers 3-4 pages of A4 paper.

Make sure that whatever project / job that you write about and anything that you state in your detailed CV is 110% from your own experience during your career.

Keep the body of the text Clear, Concise and most importantly relevant to the subject.

Final Guidelines
