RAF Engineer Branch

CEng or IEng special registration agreements for RAF Engineer Branch.

Apply for professional registration

You will need to become a member of the IET before applying for professional registration.  For more information please visit the Armed Forces IET Membership page.

To avoid duplication for applicants in demonstrating competence the IET has recognised the particularly rigorous internal training and competence assessment systems employed by the RAF and has been able to use this to underpin part of the IET process for registration applications.

A specially tailored application form has been designed for applicants following this route which takes into account the RAF's internal assessment systems.
