What happens after applying for ICTTech?

ICT Technician (ICTTech) professional registration - what happens next and the outcome/decision.

Internal review

On receipt of your application for ICTTech, your application will be:

  • reviewed by staff;
  • reviewed by experienced and trained members.

They will consider whether or not you have demonstrated the competence required for registration. You will be advised if any further information is needed.

The application process includes peer assessment by registered engineers and technicians who are IET members. These members are not IET staff, but volunteers who have been trained for this purpose. Please familiarise yourself with how we use your data.

You may be invited to attend an interview, so that trained assessors can look in more detail at the activities you carry out in the course of your day-to-day work. This will give them more information about your level of responsibility and, thus help them to establish your competence.


Successful applicants for ICTTech will receive a letter to confirm the decision, together with notification of Engineering Council fees which the IET collects on behalf of the Engineering Council. Once we have received your payment, which would be within three months, your details will be submitted to the Engineering Council for registration as an ICTTech. You will receive a certificate from the IET confirming your ICTTech registration and date registered. Your registration number will be sent to you by the Engineering Council once the registration process is complete. Only upon receipt of your registration number will you be entitled to use the designatory letters ICTTech.

Should your application be unsuccessful you will receive a letter advising you about the additional experience or knowledge required. You will also be referred to a professional registration advisor who will be able to provide you with guidance and support. In some cases a different registration category may be recommended.
