Halo and Welcome

Hi All,

This is my first forum entry here event not yet be a IRSE member (Hopely Soon). Hop to have a great stay. A warm thanks to forum admin for accepting me as forum member.

I have joined a railway 6.5 Years in the design process of safety critical Railway Signalling & Interlocking systems for Australian Rail, Malaysia, Stockholm and Indonesia.

Currently working as Signalling Design Team Leader in one of railway company in my home town (Indonesia). Most signalling knowledge are gatherer from rail project design (Work Experince only).

I would love to be a member of IRSE, however in particular as far as I know in Indonesia not too much Sig Engineer are familiar with the IRSE and what is the benefit to be an IRSE membership. I do believe on the common years the IRSE membership will be very useful for my self and also Indonesian rail industry.


Just 2 question,
1. If I would like to join IRSE member what will be the first step and to prepare? Others colleague mentioned that to be a member a recommendation words/letter are needed from the license person. is this true?
2. Let's say If the first step is complete, I'm wondering whether is there any possibility to have the exam through online as will be expensive to have direct exam out of Indonesia.

Greatly appreciate for the response

Kind Regards,
Lismana

Greetings Lismana,
I'm a newbe here as well; I've been working in Signalling design for almost 10 years and have been an IRSE member for most of that time. I've been thinking about doing the exams for some time but it wasn't until this year that there has been a study group in my area; planning to start with Paper 3 this year.

I suggest you have a look at the IRSE website's membership pages: http://www.irse.org/membership/default.aspx
I've just had a quick look and find them sadly lacking information so a quick email either to HQ or your national contact might be necessary. As far as I know, membership applications need proposers, but membership is independant of licences.
I can't comment on how the exams work in indonesia, what module(s) are you considering this year?

You have to pass four modules, one of which must be module 1. You can take them in any order and there is no time limit between the first and last and you can retake any modules that you do not pass.

If you are looking at joining the IRSE, you will need the support of a member and a fellow for full corporate Membership; however if wanting Student or Associate membership to permit you to take the exam then you still need two signatures but they can both be from Members. Don't let that deter though- we can assist in getting the signatures if needed.
