Company Based Registration Support (CBRS) provides bespoke advice and support for groups of employees, covering the whole process of becoming professionally registered as a Chartered Engineer, Incorporated Engineer, Engineering Technician, Electrician EngTech and ICT Technician.

CBRS is suitable for everyone from brand new engineers or technicians, perhaps at apprentice or graduate level, through to those experienced engineers who haven’t yet applied for professional registration.

Professional Registration gives your engineers and technicians the opportunity to have their competence recognised across the global engineering community.
