Guys,

I'm currently waiting on my PRI result and just wondered if it does take the 2 months, quoted by the IET, to find out your result - can anyone advise?

Cheers,

JBB

This is often the case. The review and moderation process is thorough and the response time depends in part upon the schedule and availability of the boards who will be reviewing your application.

I wish you every success in your application.

I too am waiting for the outcome following an interview on the 19th March. Whilst the interviewers told me a decision is usually made within 4 weeks, I've checked with my coordinator and the panel review is scheduled for today (18th April). Hopefully your application will be reviewed in the same panel and we should find out by early next week. I suggest you give the professional registration team a call, I've found them to be very helpful.

Just found out that my application is not going to panel review until 23rd of May and that I will find out the result approximately a week later.

9 - 10 weeks to find out a result seems pretty long if you ask me.

It does seem a long time, particularly when you are waiting to hear about something you have worked so hard towards.

The IET are a victim of their own success at the moment in attracting potential registrants. All of us, PRAs, Interviewers and Assessors are very busy and there is a limit to what we can do as volunteers. Extra volunteers are being recruited, but these people then have to be properly trained so that the quality of service given to our "clients" is acceptable.

Once you have your good news, you might like to consider volunteering for the benefit of future applicants? You will find it very worthwhile I promise you!!

Best Regards,

David,

I've already volunteered - put myself forward for the IET Mentoring service (under the premise that my application will be successful).

Given that the PRI is the last piece of the jigsaw (as the IET already have all the other application info) then is it not a case of getting a simple yes or no from the interviewees to progress the result?

It goes something like this... Following the interview, an assessment panel will review the evidence and prepare a PRI report. The registrar then reviews the evidence, considers the assessor's recommendations, manages any lack of consensus, and decides the final outcome. He will consider all the evidence including the application form, the initial assessments, any reports generated by the process etc. It has to be a fully auditable process and it ensures minimum standards. The people involved have to work to a timetable, and depend on admin support tasks performed by the IET staff.

With 1000+ people at various stages in the pipeline, you can probably get some idea of the organisation required.

Worth bearing in mind the process is laid down by the Engineering Council. Amongst the benefits they seek is that a wide number of peers review independently the assessments and results at each stage for both quality and consistency purposes. A delay can occur if an assessor is indisposed for a while, or finds that there is a conflict of interest or they feel their skills sets are not sufficient to make a proper assessment having looked over the application. The delay is then getting another assessor on board.

Remember that ass the assessors and interviewers are volunteers.. its not our job, but a personal commitment to the profession so it is inevitable that delays can occur. You seem to have been unlucky and 4-6 weeks is pretty normal

Probably I am one of the ´unlucky´ ones. This is the 8th week of waiting to hear the PRI outcome of my application with an interview date 31/03/12. The only thing I was told by the registration coordinator was that simply my application hasn´t gone to the panel yet.

As you all agree, this is an important phase of an individual´s professional development and I am eagerly looking forward to hear the outcome so I can take some important career decisions afterwards. I really hope it will be a positive outcome, soon.

I fully understand, and appreciate, that it is volunteers who give up their time to undertake assessment. My query was that given the PRI is the last piece of jigsaw, then is it not a simple recommendation yes or no to your application?

Nektarios - I've been informed that my application goes to panel tomorrow (23rd) and that I will find the result within a week after that. It might be the same for you.

If it helps, I applied for C.Eng on 19 March, had interview on 3rd May and received decision today.
By my reckoning thats a 10 week total process and 3.5 weeks from interview for a decision.

Can't ask for quicker than that...especially since it's all done by volunteers.

I had my C.Eng PRI on April 2nd, I also found out the result today, 8 weeks later. I may have had a longer wait due to having my interview outside of the UK.
