The award recognises 20 years of continuous accreditation by the IET of AMEC's professional development schemes.

AMEC Group President Europe, John Pearson, and our Chief Electrical & Instruments Engineer, Charles Campbell, are Fellows of the IET so we really appreciate this recognition."

The IET's Dick Balestrini, Manager - Professional Development Accreditation, said: "The IET is very happy to present AMEC with its Long Running Scheme award in acknowledgement of our continued and valued partnership and in recognition of their achievement in sustaining and improving their IET Accredited Professional Development Schemes since 1994.An Accredited IET Professional Development Scheme gives a developing engineer a quality assured pathway from when they join their company scheme through to Professional Registration. These developing engineers are essential to the future success of the company and many of the current technical and business leaders in the engineering community started their career on such a scheme."
