Affiliate Membership Grade

Membership of the AECoW is open to suitably qualified and experienced environmental and construction professionals with relevant experience in the environmental management of construction and development sites. We have recently introduced this grade for non-ECoW environmental and construction professionals, as we aim to broaden our church and engage more widely across the planning, regulatory, development and construction sectors / industries.

Professionals in all industries are expected to maintain and expand their skills and knowledge through Continued Professional Development (CPD).

Many AECoW members will have specific CPD requirements placed on them by their membership of other professional bodies.  At  this time, AECoW does not propose to place specific CPD requirements on members, however a condition of membership is a moral obligation placed on members to  maintain currency with their specific professional discipline in terms of the law, health and safety, statutory and other regulations.

In the fullness of time AECoW intends to bring together training providers and members to develop and deliver appropriate training events.  Until that time, the website will be updated regularly with relevant external training events.

AECoW reserves the right to request proof of CPD during the application process.
