Air engineering

CEng and IEng special registration agreements for Royal Navy air engineers personnel.

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 Royal Navy air engineers (RN AE) and has been able to use this to underpin part of the process for registration applications.

A specially tailored application form has been designed for applicants following this route which takes into account RN AE's internal assessments systems.
