AIES resigns from AICIP

AIES have officially resigned from membership and the Board of the Australian Institute for the Certification of Inspection Personnel (AICIP). AIES was a Foundation Member of AICIP in 1995 and represented the greatest number of AICIP Certified Inspectors, so the decision to resign has not been taken lightly and was reached with many frustrations.  Our resignation is an extremely disappointing situation for our association given our history and contributions to AICIP over many years. The reasons behind the unfortunate resignation and what this means to members will be communicated in the coming weeks.
