If you are planning on applying in 2020, then you may be tempted to wait for the new system but we recommend getting your application as soon as you are ready to avoid any delay.

What features will change on the new Career Manager?
The new version of Career Manager will have the same functionality you are used to but aims to be mobile-responsive, provide a simpler and more modern user experience and takes into consideration feedback from our regular users.
Will there be an App version of the new Career Manager?
At this time, we are focussing on updating the existing system to make it a more modern user experience, but we have taken on board feedback about the existing system to make it more mobile-responsive.
Any App development would need to take into consideration a number of factors and work with a number of systems across the IET but is on our list for potential future development.
Will my data be migrated into the new Career Manager?
We are updating the reporting offered in the new version of Career Manager, so any documents that you have uploaded to support a Professional Registration application or any snapshots you have taken as IPD reports or CPD reports will not be migrated.
All other information will be migrated into the new system for members so you don’t need to worry about transferring any of the records you have entered.
You may find that the some field titles in the new version will change or we have consolidated similar fields into one new area however the data will be moved to the relevant area for you.
