Registered Professional Engineer Queensland (RPEQ)
The Royal Institution of Naval Architects is approved by the Board of Professional Engineers Queensland (BPEQ) as an Assessment Entity, ie authorised to assess applications for registration as RPEQ.
Chartered Members who wish to apply for registration are required to be currently practising at Chartered Member level.
Non Chartered Members (MRINA) must first qualify for CEng and be currently practising at Chartered Member level.
If the member’s qualifications and competencies satisfy the requirements as set out in Section 10 of the Professional Engineers Act 2002 (QLD), they will be sent a letter confirming that they have met the requirements. Application should then be made to the BPEQ for registration as RPEQ, submitting the letter. No charge is made for this initial assessment letter.
Members who are registered as RPEQ must comply with any specific requirements set by the BPQE, such as the requirement for minimum hours of CPD activity which is currently set at 50 hours per year, or 150 hours over 3 years.
