Some practical help for Candidates

Posted By Chris Reay, Tuesday, 07 June 2016

Response to Ryan 

Vaughan passed on your emails and your wish to get registered in the next year.
You have evidently done sufficient time post graduation (min 3 years).
The reason SAIMechE developed the PDP was to enable the process of becoming competent easier. Trying to decipher a process directly out of the ECSA documents is not easy.The PDP’s objective is for the Candidate to achieve a level of competency that can meet the ECSA requirements once the results are encapsulated in the ECSA formats, should the Candidate wish to register.
SAIMechE’s PDP in effect takes the ECSA Outcomes and “connects” them to the Referee Report and the other reports with process that uses the assessment criteria in easy to identify format, as well as suggesting activities that can be undertaken by the Candidate and displayed to the Mentor to facilitate the application of the criteria. 
The Mentor should then provide the role of the Referee as he/she will have acquired the information to perform that role, having related to the candidate in sufficient detail.
The NRS requires a more involved role by the Mentor. The PDP has also now developed a training module for the Mentor, but it is essentially the same content for the work described in the PDP Outcome documents.
Candidates are encouraged to make use of the SAIMechE website and join the PDP Group. In this way you can relate to others via the blog facility.
