Register Professional Engineer of Queensland – RPEQ
Employers: see below.
In 2014, Professionals Australia received formal approval from the Queensland Minister for Housing and Public Works to become an assessment entity for the Board of Professional Engineers Queensland (BPEQ).
This means that Professionals Australia can now assess your competency and qualifications for Registered Professional Engineer of Queensland (RPEQ) status.
The process for Registered Professional Engineer of Queensland (RPEQ) assessment is the same process as the application for Registered Professional Engineer of Professionals Australia (RPEng).
The six engineering disciplines Professionals Australia can assess competency in are:
How does it work?
Regardless of which organisation undertakes your assessment, you still need to apply with the Board of Professional Engineers Queensland (BPEQ) to be recognised as a Registered Professional Engineer of Queensland (RPEQ).
Once your assessment has been undertaken, you will be issued with a Letter of Assessment, formally recognising that the assessment of your competency and qualifications has been successful.
When undertaking your Professional Engineer of Queensland (RPEQ) application, you will be required to present this letter, which the Board of Professional Engineers Queensland (BPEQ) will accept.
Once the Board of Professional Engineers Queensland (BPEQ) approves your application, you will then become a Professional Engineer of Queensland (RPEQ).
Importantly, it is not required that you join an organisation to have your competency and qualifications assessed.
If you are an employer who requires your professional engineers to be registered, Professionals Australia’s assessment process might be an ideal alternative to existing assessment processes.
Our process was created to be streamlined for the applicant, without comprising on rigour – meaning it is less time-consuming for the employee.
If you also advocate for national registration, we strongly recommend looking into the Registered Professional Engineer of Professionals Australia (RPEng) Scheme.
The fee for Registered Professional Engineer (RPEng) is only $300, which includes RPEQ assessment – RPEng is only available to Professionals Australia members. This is a saving of $200 on the non-member fee, and a considerable saving on alternative schemes.
If you’re employees are not members of Professionals Australia, the cost for assessment is only $500.
If RPEQ assessments, RPEng or Professionals Australia membership is of interest, Professionals Australia will happily send out a representative to discuss these options with you personally.
