As like before, you can prepare and submit your Professional Registration application in Career Manager.

I submitted my application in the previous version of Career Manager, do I have to submit another one in the new system?

No, your application will continue to be progressed as usual. The documentation and application status could not be migrated over to the new version of Career Manager; however, we can manually amend the status once a decision has been made regarding your existing application. You can contact our professional registration team at profreg@theiet.org should you wish to know the status of your existing application.

  • Modern look and feel with a simplified interface.
  • Receive feedback on competence assessments and CPD plans.
  • Simply save and view your progress as you work towards Professional Registration.

Will there be an App version of the new Career Manager?

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 mobile-responsive.

Any App development would need to take into consideration several factors and work with several systems across the IET but it 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. Job profile data is also not being migrated.

You may notice 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.

Why has it changed?

The old version of Career Manager was based on an outdated platform which meant we couldn’t provide enhancements or improvements.
