Increase your employability

IET membership is of significant value to Service leavers' as they no longer have access to the excellent professional development support they benefited from in their careers in the Services up until now.

Professional registration

You will need to become a member of the IET before applying for professional registration. Please apply using the application forms above.

Becoming professionally registered as a Chartered Engineer (CEng), Incorporated Engineer (IEng), Engineering Technician (EngTech) or ICT Technician (ICTTech) is highly valued by employers and allows your military skills and experience to receive international recognition.

Benefits of professional registration:

  • Recognition as a professional in your field;
  • Looks good on your CV and will make you stand out from the crowd;
  • Improved self motivation, career opportunities and salary prospects;
  • Confirmation that you are a competent engineer;
  • Connecting you with innovative, influential and inspirational people;
  • International recognition of your qualifications.

  • Professional development training courses

    Specialising in training for engineering and technology professionals, the IET is a CTP preferred supplier for its training courses and can help you find the right course for your needs with member discounts available;

  • Mentoring

    The IET mentoring service can link you to a suitable volunteer mentor, who will support you to achieve your goals and our mentors can gain just as much from supporting others;

  • IET Connect

    The IET Connect (the IET's benevolent fund) is a separate registered charity which provides a range of services to members when times are difficult eg outplacement service.

IET and CTP arrangement

Following the signing of an arrangement between Michelle Richmond, IET Director of membership and professional development, and CTP Director of Training, Liz Taylor in 2010, the IET and CTP are working together to achieve professional recognition of the transferable skills that all ex-military personnel have gained throughout their career.
