We encourage our Associate and Student members to attend and record all CPD activities and participate in our CPD policy by submitting activity forms to the AHSCA at the end of each financial year.

Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE)

In 2015 the AHSCA WA Chapter formed a partnership proposal with the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE). CIBSE is an international professional organization representing Building Services Engineering.

One of CIBSE’s main objectives is to support the science, art and practice of building services engineering by providing its members and the public with first class information and education services whilst promoting the spirit of fellowship.

Another of CIBSE’s main aims is to promote the career of Building Services Engineers by accrediting courses of study in further and higher education and also by approving work-based training programmes and providing routes to full professional registration and membership, including Chartered Engineer (CEng), Incorporated Engineer (IEng) and Engineering Technician (Eng. Tech) status.

The AHSCA encourages its members to visit the CIBSE website and to seek membership of CIBSE which can further support your AHSCA membership and status as a registered building services engineer – membership can be in the following forms:

•    Affiliate Grade
•    Licentiate (LCIBSE) Grade
•    Associate (ACIBSE) Grade
•    Member (MCIBSE)             
•    Fellow (FCIBSE)


Changes to Full Membership

Full Members must take out and maintain professional indemnity insurance whilst Full Members maintain membership with the Association with a minimum level of indemnity of:

(i) $1,000,000.00 for any one claim; and
(ii) $2,000,000.00 in aggregate during any one period of insurance.

Upon request by the Board of Directors, Full Members must provide current certificates of insurance and other documentation reasonably required by the Association to evidence such insurances.

The Association may review the levels of indemnity and amend such levels in its discretion and Full Members must adjust their level of cover accordingly.
