Another three successful registrants! Congratulations Tim Lawler & Rebecca Kirrane from RCSI and Michaella Wiltshire from the Royal Free London!
The Science Council is a membership organisation for professional bodies and learned societies across the disciplines of science. They set the standards for professional registration for practising scientists and science technicians, independent of scientific discipline.
Professional bodies within their membership are licensed to award their members who meet these standards. Link to Science Council Home page
29th March 2018 - There has been some delays with Certificates being issued for simulations technicians who have been awarded RSci and RSciTech, both ASPiH and the Science Council can only apologise for the delay, however we can confirm that these certificates will be sent out the first week in April 2018.
31st March 2018 - The Science Council Board are currently reviewing the licensing arrangements with smaller bodies and a decision will be made around June, when an announcement from the Science Council will follow.
Registered professional scientists are recognised for their competence, ability and integrity. They are committed to keeping their skills and knowledge up to date through continuing professional development (CPD) and their profession accountable to public interest. Professional registration is a voluntary status that holds people to account for their professional practice and ethical standards.
To fulfil the Science Council Membership Criteria, ASPIH has developed their Code of Professional Conduct specific to simulation technicians and technologists
ASPiH is now officially recognised as the professional body for simulation technician and technologists. The Science Council set the standards for professional registration for practicing scientists and science technicians, independent of scientific discipline. Our Science Council membership will support us to raise the professional status of our technician members and through their professional registration provide recognition and further career development opportunities.
During 2017 we will be supporting Science Council registration to our members.
What does this mean for skills and simulation technicians who are Members of ASPiH?
The Science Council will support simulation technicians by offering them access to the RSciTech (Registered Science Technician) RSci (Registered Scientist) registers and the opportunity to work towards the CSci (Chartered Scientist) award in the future.
If you are a simulation technician or technologist and are keen to achieve professional registration status, please register your interest asap with Jane Nicklin ASPiH Operations Manager
