Why choose the IET?

We are one of the world’s leading professional institutions for engineers and technicians and our accreditation covers a whole range of engineering disciplines. IET Accreditation is recognised as a high-quality seal of approval throughout industry, academia and government and aids companies in the recruitment, retention and development of graduates and professional engineers.

We promote accredited schemes to students and graduates as the ideal way into the industry.

How does it work?

Accredited schemes typically build on established development programmes already in place to meet the needs of the business.

They must provide the necessary training, development and experience to enable individuals to build a portfolio of evidence and demonstrate the required level of competence for professional registration.

Your scheme will be listed on the IET website and you will be able to use the IET Accredited Scheme logo on promotional material.
