Why EngTech? For employers

The competence of an individual electrician is becoming increasingly important as companies strive to minimise re-work, ensure high safety standards to reassure the public and keep up with new technologies impacting the industry.

Having your electricians achieve EngTech is great for your business:

  • Win more work – win contracts by having proof that each individual in your team has had their competence assessed as part of a robust peer-review process. The Recognised Standard Electrician EngTech is a competence framework that includes a focus on both safety and ethics, giving absolute reassurance to employers and clients.
  • It’s a great recruitment tool – upskill your workforce to help recruit driven, ambitious employees by providing a clear career path for them to develop their knowledge.
  • Lifelong benefits to your employees as IET members – including discounts on all publications, a benevolent fund, reward scheme discounts, and the opportunity to join local and technical networks, sharing knowledge and experience with other like-minded people.
  • Gain recognition from the industry experts – have your employees professionally registered by the organisation that co-publishes BS 7671, a great sales message to your clients.

Providing support to employers

We can help your business to support your employees. We can arrange a complimentary Competence Workshop/webinar for your electricians, qualified supervisors, electrical team leaders and managers to get you started.

These workshops/webinars provide an overview of the IET and more on the benefits of registration. We also bring along a technical expert who will present on a technical topic relevant to your employees. This could be an IET Wiring Regulations overview or a session focussed on SPD’s or EV charging.

We also offer one to one sessions with a Professional Registration Advisor, where each employee will have the chance to get advice on their own application. We can arrange a follow-up session if required, where the PRA will help them to put the application together, ready for submission.

In view of the current COVID-19 pandemic, we cannot hold these sessions face to face at this time.
