Becoming a Chartered Manager (CMgr)

Why should I apply?

  • Becoming a CMgr boosts your employability and professional status, and demonstrates your competence.
  • Applying through the IET rather than directly with CMI means you get a 50 per cent discount on CMI membership. The discount also applies to renewal fees.
  • CMgr is available to all IET Members who are registered as Chartered Engineer (CEng) or Incorporated Engineer (IEng) and have five years or more management experience, from anywhere in the world.

How do I apply?

  • If you meet the criteria and would like to submit an application please send an email to membership@theiet.org with your membership number and we'll send you a link to the online application form.

What happens next?

  • You’ll then receive an assessment form from CMI and allocated an assessor who’ll advise you on completing it. You have 12 months to complete this step.
  • The next step is a formal telephone interview.
  • CMI will contact your line manager/colleague to corroborate your evidence and make a final decision.

Additional information:

  • If you’re an organisation that wants to offer CMgr to your employees, please call the Chartered Management Institution on +44 (0)1536 207380.
  • Any other questions? Call +44 (0) 1438 765 678 or email us at charteredmanager@theiet.org.
