The representatives of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland) paid a working visit to the Mining University. The meeting with the Rector of the Mining University Vladimir Litvinenko resulted in working out an agreement on collaboration and partnership.

The Institute is an international professional body that awards professional engineering statuses. Having a certificate issued by the Institute is a recognition of excellent competence facilitating further  promotion of an engineer.  Programs of professional development provided by the Institute may result in higher grades of membership and such certificates as MIMMM, CEng, CEng FIMMM.

The British delegation consisted of Ian Bowbrick, Director of Professional Development and Membership Department, and Barry Lye, Chairman of the PMI Trust and Past President of IOM3. The guests arrived with the aim to promote the idea of strategic partnership between the IOM3 and the National Association of Mining Engineers. They believe that these two institutions are key players in the field of educational and professional standards in Britain and Russia. The partnership between the institutions will improve the training process of staff for the mineral complex. 

The Rector of the Mining University Vladimir Litvinenko has emphasized the importance of the system of continuing education for mining engineers in Russia a number of times. He also believes that it is of utmost importance to increase the prestige of the engineering profession and to integrate in the international professional community. That was the reason why the largest employers of the Russian mineral industry and Mining University established the National Association of Mining Engineers. One of the goals is to create a national system of awarding the status “Professional mining engineer” and to get the international recognition for the status.

As a result of the negotiations the parties arrived at an agreement on the development of partnership. The partners made a decision to establish an IOM3 Local Society with its headquarters in St Petersburg. The Local Society will assess the staff of the mineral complex and award the status “Professional mining engineer” that will be internationally recognized. The key partner of the Local Society will be the National Association of Mining Engineers.

The Russian and British colleagues worked out and approved of using the Roadmap where certain steps of partnership between the IOM3 and Mining University are stated. According to the document the parties will sign an agreement on mutual recognition of international and Russian professional statuses of the mineral complex in December.
