If you are already registered with the Engineering Council through another professional engineering institution, you can apply to become a professionally registered member of the Permanent Way Institution at the same level by submitting an application using the Dual Membership application form.
As a professionally registered engineer you have satisfied the Engineering Council that you demonstrate the required level of competence and commitment for your registered grade. These are generic standards, applied by all professional engineering institutions.
To become a professionally registered member of the PWI you need to demonstrate a further competence, one that enhances your abilities as a qualified rail infrastructure engineer. You will need to demonstrate that you have adopted the required set of values and behaviours that always prioritise safety first.
Ready to apply?
Step 1. Review PWI Competence and Commitment Criteria F for your registered level to check that you consistently demonstrate the behaviours required of a professionally registered PWI Member.
Step 2. Download the Dual Membership Application form and Guidance Notes.
Step 3. Complete your application and submit it for review.
Once you are a professionally registered PWI member, you can either pay your annual Engineering Council fee through us or your existing PEI. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
