The EngTech competence and commitment standards

If you wish to register as an EngTech the IET has prepared all the information you need in an easy to read guide.

Do I need to have qualifications?

We believe that knowledge can come in many different ways. You’re eligible for EngTech if you have any of the following:

  • Successful completion of an apprenticeship or other work-based learning programme approved by a Licensee
  • Alongside appropriate working experience, holding a qualification, approved by a Licensee, in engineering or construction set at either:
    • level 3 (or above) in the Regulated Qualifications Framework or National Qualifications Framework for England and Northern Ireland
    • level 6 (or above) in the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework level 3 (or above) in the Credit and Qualifications Framework for Wales
  • Alongside appropriate working experience, holding equivalent qualifications or apprenticeships Accredited or approved by a Licensee, or at an equivalent level in a relevant national or international qualifications framework.

We believe in the value of experience as well as education. That’s why we’ll consider your application if you don’t meet the educational requirements but can prove you have the same level of knowledge and understanding.
