A Preparation Course for the IStructE Chartered Member and Associate Member Examinations

The Institution's Yorkshire Regional Group will be holding a 9-week course of evening classes starting on 5 March 2018.

The first class (Monday 5th March) will consist of an introduction to the Institution’s examinations and the assessment process. It will be followed by a further 7 classes in which past questions will be reviewed using a tutorial-based approach involving the whole class. The final class (Monday 14th May) will consist of a question and answer session with a current experienced IStructE marking examiner.

The course will focus on general examination technique plus questions covering the design of steel, concrete and general buildings. Consideration of specialist questions such as bridges will NOT form a part of the course although any knowledge gained of the examination technique will be of use when attempting these questions.

All participants must bring their own copies of codes of practice or any other design guides.

Anyone intending to sit the IStructE’s CM or AM examination.
