We last heard from Eymard Ahern in our Building Engineer journal (October 2014) when he had just passed his professional interview and gained Chartered membership with the CABE.
We touched base with him a year later to see what impact obtaining Chartered membership has had.
“The decision to join the Chartered Association of Building Engineers has been very beneficial to me. Since becoming a Chartered member, I was accepted on the register as a Building Surveyor with the Irish Registration Board. This gave me the authority to design and certify works under the Building Control Act Regulations.
I joined the regional CABE committee in the Republic of Ireland, assisting in the administration of regional matters and interview procedures for new applicants. The committee also manage CPD events that are proving to be very informative and popular to both members and non-members.
I decided to further my academic qualifications and attained an MSc in Quantity Surveying and Sustainable Public Building.
I recently applied for Fellowship with the Association and was successful. I am currently on a research programme of Professional Doctorate in the Built Environment at the Anglia Ruskin University and will promote the association as being an excellent body to enhance personal development”.
It's great to have this update from Eymard. Have you got a story you'd like to share? Let us know how becoming a member of CABE has enhanced your career.
