Transfer to EngTech AMILP with the ILP Lighting Diploma Completion Project

If you are an Affiliate, the ILP Lighting Diploma Completion Project may be used to fast track through to EngTech AMILP in place of formal academic qualifications. However, it is not something which is awarded automatically. Students must follow the procedure given below if they wish to be assessed for EngTech AMILP.


Students should endeavour to make a presentation on the Module C course, as this is a necessary part of the Engineering Council’s (EngC) requirements for EngTech registration. Students who have already completed their Module C and haven’t been part of a presentation may be assessed with a short interview either in person or by other media.

Students should read the EngC requirements for EngTech and should map their projects across to the UKSPEC competencies (4th edition), as per the example below.

Once the projects have been marked and results returned, successful students may apply for EngTech AMILP. It would be unusual however for anyone with a score of less than a Credit to have attained the level of competence required.

    1. Submit Your Application


    Your completed application form.

    CPD record for the preceding two years.

    CPD forward plan for the following twelve months.

    An expanded CV covering the past 3 years.

    Your mapped project.

    2. Assessment

    The ILP Assessment Panel will then assess your project and application. 

    3. Application Approved

    If approved, you will be accepted as an AMILP and registered as an EngTech.

    A nominal initial registration fee is payable at this point.

    The ILP seeks to be as inclusive as possible, so if you have any concerns about applying for membership / attending our Exterior Lighting Diploma courses, LDC local events or our one-day courses for whatever reason please let us know and we will try to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that you can fully engage with the ILP.
