If you are already a member and are interested in transferring or upgrading your category of membership then find out how your skills, experience and professionalism can be recognised with letters after your name.
Members of the IET can apply to transfer their category of membership to include designatory letters once they have acquired the sufficient skills or experience.
Members can transfer their membership to the following categories:
You do not have to pay anything extra when transferring membership categories to TMIET or MIET but please ensure that all outstanding membership fees are paid. Visit My IET to check your membership fee status online (login required).
Students and apprentices are automatically transferred to the membership category of Associate when their course finishes. All students and apprentices need to take the active step of applying to transfer their membership to TMIET or MIET (as appropriate) if they wish to enjoy the benefits of being entitled to use designatory letters after their name.
Student or apprentice members of the IET do not need to provide a supporter when transferring to TMIET or MIET, providing they submit documentary evidence showing they have completed their qualifications. Please note: the qualification must meet the requirements for the chosen membership category.
The IET reserves the right to request supporter details and detailed curriculum vitae (CV) from all applicants.
