FIDIC launches 2019 international young professionals management training programme

FIDIC's high-quality management and business training course for young professionals is now taking registrations

International engineering federation FIDIC has launched its prestigious international management training programme for young professionals for 2019.

The 2019 FIDIC Young Professionals Management Training Programme offers a seven-month online management course for future leaders in the consulting engineering industry and similar technology-based firms. The course has two main elements - an online module where participants work in their office or at home using an online platform for communication, and a conference module where all participants meet for five days of intensive face-to-face training and mentoring prior to the annual FIDIC conference in Mexico City in September 2019.

The popular programme has seen almost 60 countries participate since 2004, giving young professionals high-quality management and business skills training across the key disciplines they need as aspiring business leaders in the consulting engineering industry. Key areas covered by the training include organisation and human resources, marketing and business development and business consolidation. Full details can be found online at

One of the graduates of the 2018 programme, Patrick Dinno, said: “The Young Professionals Management Training Programme and also attending the FIDIC international infrastructure conference in Berlin provided me with a platform to network with likeminded people around the globe with unbound benefits. Based on my experience with the programme I recommend it to all young professionals in the consulting engineering industry and call upon employers to invest in their employees’ training.”

Successful graduates of the training receive a certificate which enables students to demonstrate their achievements and obtain professional development units based on their participation in the programme.

FIDIC's 2019 Young Professionals Management Training Programme for future managers in the consulting engineering industry is now open for registration. Programme fees cost €2,750 and those interested in enrolling can do so at
