Below is an email sent to the IET but have not replied with any answers or clarification
I wonder you can help me please, I a registered EngTech and wish to progress to IEng, I have been using the career manager and paid a visit to an IET PRA.
The pra did have some good points which I took on-board, however towards the end of the visit he recommended that I needed to enrol into a foundation degree followed by a BA which is completely different from my understanding of the routes to IEng. At the end of the visit with pra I wondered if in fact it was even worth per suing the IEng or just forgetting it completely.
I have since spoken with other IEng who do not hold a foundation degree or a Bachelor's degree and they suggested I contacted the IET for clarification.
I do hold the following:
City and Guilds LCGI Engineering
City and Guilds LCGI Process
City and Guilds Full Technological Certificate
ECITB NVQ Level three Engineering
City and Guilds Motor Craft 1
City and Guilds Motor Craft 2
National Coal Board Apprentice Papers
Plus many more training certificates, I have over thirty years of experience in engineering including owning my own workshop, I am currently applying for work visa for the USA so I have had my experience and qualifications evaluated in America with the outcome that they say I have an equivalent to a Bachelor of Science Degree in Engineering and Technology issued by a USA regional college.
The City and Guilds Listing the LCGI and FTC see below
City & Guilds = Licentiateship (LCGI), Higher Professional Diploma, SVQ/NVQ level 4, Level 4 vocational awards
Academic = Undergraduate
Other = Full technical certificate, BTEC HND/HNC
My main question is do I have enough qualifications to apply for the IEng via the IET or am I wasting my time.
