This affordable one day training course has been developed to help trainees understand the requirements of their Training Agreement and to manage their own progress effectively and with confidence.

About the Training Agreement

The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) approves Training Agreements to enable companies to develop their trainees in a structured way as they progress towards a professional qualification. The Training Agreement ensures that a broad range of experience is covered and that it is recorded and assessed at various stages.



Training courses on set dates, in ICE Training venues across the country. Suitable for those looking to attend a training course and share knowledge and practical experiences with like-minded others in an interactive learning environment.


Bespoke training programmes. These are delivered by our tutors at a time, in a location and based on a curriculum completely tailored to your needs. Ideal for organisations that have several employees wishing to take training in the same subject area, and/or have organisation-specific ideas for learning and development.
