FCIBSE & FCIBSE CEng

1. New applicants for CIBSE membership or current members who are not MCIBSE

The Engineering Practice Report should be between 4000 and 5000 words long based on the competence criteria for FCIBSE as outlined in fact sheet F21. It can also be written and presented in 2 different formats:

Competence Based - where the candidates start with competence A1 and describe a few projects where they feel they have covered this competence and then continue on with each of the required competences.

Project Based - where the candidates use two or three projects to highlight where they feel they have covered the competences.

Below is a number of carefully picked reports we feel are good examples of the layout and content expected from each applicant.

2. Applicants transferring from MCIBSE to FCIBSE

You will need to submit a statement of your Work Experience/Contribution to the Industry since your application for MCIBSE. Special references should be made to your level of seniority and although you will not need to refer to the 16 competence criteria on F21 in your statement, they are a useful guidance when putting the document together.

Below is a number of carefully picked statements we feel are good examples of the layout and content expected from each applicant.

3. Contribution to the Industry

All applicants applying for FCIBSE, whether new or transferring, will have to complete details of your contribution to the profession through support for the Institution, young entrants to building services engineering and general promotion of the discipline.
