Professional registration recognises your competence, commitment, skills and experience.
Professional registration is an important milestone for any engineer or technician. It establishes their proven knowledge, understanding and competence. In particular, registration shows your peers and employers that you have demonstrated a commitment to professional standards, and to developing and enhancing competence.
The IET is licensed by the Engineering Council [new window] to award the professional engineering qualifications defined in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence [new window] (UK-SPEC).
The ICT Technician qualification is defined in the Information and Communications Technology Technician [new window] (ICTTech) Standard.
Following a licensing agreement signed in December 2012 with BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, IET members will be able to apply for Chartered IT Professional (CITP) via the IET from summer 2013.

You will be required to pay a non-refundable application fee for professional registration. Successful applicants will also be required to pay an Engineering Council entrance fee.
Professional registration fees can be paid in Sterling (GBP £), as well as local payments in China and India.
Currently there are no requirements for re-assessment once registration has been granted, and you will remain on the Engineering Council register whilst you remain a member of a licensed body. Joining the register confirms your commitment to both the Engineering Council's Guidelines for Institutions' Codes of Conduct [new window] and the IET Rules of Conduct and your obligation to remain professionally competent through CPD.
