Important announcement -  Extending the expiry date of FCCE certificates of 2016 

In accordance with the Regulations of the FIDIC Certified Consulting Engineers Pilot Programme, the certificates issued for the first batch of 512 FCCEs expired on 28 November 2019.

In order to ensure that the normal business activities of the FCCEs are not affected by the expiration of their certificates and to safeguard the interests of FCCEs and their employers, the FCCE Certification Management Board has, after due consideration and thorough consultations and in profound consideration and through consultations, as well as in agreement with FIDIC, decided that the expiry date of the 512 FCCEs’ certificates (certificate number ranging from CE-00001 to CE-00512) will be extended until 30 November 2020.

However, no certificates will be renewed or issued, only extended. We trust that the FCCEs, their relevant organisations, clients and contractors will accept this proposal note the action taken.

FIDIC is proud to announce the great success of the World's first programme for FIDIC Certified Consulting Engineers. 

The World’s first programme for FIDIC Certified Consulting Engineers graduated some 512 students from across the country, after three training courses held over 2 years, concluding with an examination On July 30-31, 2016. The first FCCE examination was organized simultaneously in Beijing, Chengdu and Xi’an. A total of 512 candidates participated in the examination.

The second FCCE examination was organized on July 29-30, 2017 in Beijing, Wuhan and Guangzhou simultaneously. In total 467 candidates participated in the examination.

In total, 979 candidates have been designated as FCCEs and awarded Certificates signed by the FIDIC President.

The programme, endorsed by the State Council of China, confirms recognition of the FIDIC brand, and the FIDIC “Body of Knowledge”, as key ingredients in understanding international best practice for consulting engineers. 

The pilot programme has been heralded as a great success, paving the way for similar programmes in other countries, where enhanced recognition of the value of consulting engineers is being strived for. This special programme focuses on the business of  consulting engineering only and not on contract administration under FIDIC contracts. 

This programme was conducted in collaboration with CNAEC & the Peking University.
