Registration

Postby onq » Sun Feb 12, 2012 12:54 am

For anyone interested in reading about such things, I submitted my Stage One application for Registration at the end of January 2012.
Stage One is about offering evidence that you had operated as an architect for a minimum of seven years after getting qualified.
It was as eloquent a reply as I could think of to the letter requesting me to offer an undertaking not to use the Title.

This was the latest stage in a three year process of research, negotiating, assembling, study, and meetings.
There was no delay the part of the RIAI - they confirmed acceptance and pointed me towards Stage Two.
For the avoidance of doubt and to encourage others who may be dithering, here is the Introduction.

=============================================

ROUTE C ADMISSION TO RIAI MEMBERSHIP AND TO THE RIAI REGISTER FOR ARCHITECTS

Procedures

The Criteria

The purpose of this process is to allow the applicant to demonstrate that he or she has a degree, diploma or other
qualification in architecture prescribed under the Building Control Act, and seven or more years of post-graduate
experience of performing duties commensurate with those of an architect, such as has equipped him/her with the
knowledge, skills and competence necessary for independent practice as an architect in Ireland.

Stage 1. Submission of Application supported by documentation demonstrating that the Applicant’s academic
qualifications and duration of post-graduate experience meet the eligibility criteria. If this requirement is met the Applicant
proceeds to Stage 2.

Stage 2. Submission of an Account of Practical Experience and a Self-Assessment of Professional Practice Knowledge,
Skills and Competence acquired by the applicant, with supporting documentation.

Stage 3. Interview. In certain cases, where the Assessors judge that the Self-Assessment and Documentary Evidence
clearly demonstrate that the Applicant has had sufficient post-graduate experience of performing duties commensurate
with those of an architect to acquire the necessary knowledge, skills and competence, the Interview may be dispensed
with.

That's the "easy" bit - now comes the hard part!

"For anyone interested in reading about such things, I submitted my Stage One application for Registration at the end of January 2012."

"There was no delay the part of the RIAI - they confirmed acceptance and pointed me towards Stage Two."

No change since. Trying to scrabble together enough money "left over" from paying bills to pay for the next stages and printing costs. Not easy just at the moment. More small work. Time-consuming. not profitable in the financial sense, but hugely rewarding. Still, you know.

Onwards and upwards!

As for the new Building Control Amendment Bill, I'll look forward to seeing your considered comments on the other thread :)

Fine Gael wouldn't be perceived as "the builders party" but now it looks like they're trying to screw the professions they and others undermined with the self-certification process. More anon.
