I have graduated with an environmental-related degree that is not accredited under the HKIQEP Accreditation Scheme. How many years of environmental-related work experience must I have to apply for professional membership?
At least five years of environmental-related work experience is required on or before 2022, but this would increase to at least 10 years starting 2023.
I am admitted to an accredited programme before the eligible academic year stated in the list of accredited undergraduate degree programmes. What benefits will I enjoy on the qualification process?
You will be considered under a special arrangement where you will only require at least 5 years environment-related work experience for Professional Membership application. However, there will be no exemption granted for Professional Assessment (Part I).
I am admitted to an accredited programme in or after the eligible academic year stated in the list of accredited undergraduate degree programmes. Which courses should I take in order to be eligible under HKIQEP Accreditation Scheme?
The courses required under each accredited programme are different and largely depend on the focus of the programmes themselves. You are advised to contact the relevant institutions or programmes for further details.
