Fees for professional registration

Professional registration fees for the current year.

You must be a member of the IET before applying for professional registration. For more information about the associated membership fees please visit the membership fees page and for more information on applying for membership please visit the about IET membership page.

For information on fees relating to Chartered IT Professional registration, please visit the CITP fees page.

Candidates are encouraged to apply online through Career Manager, the IET’s skills development and recording tool. Applications made via Career Manager attract a considerable discount.

Benefits of applying via Career Manager include:

  • Mandatory fields mean that we are less likely to have to go back to you for more information and can process your application faster.
  • You can keep track of your application using Career Manager so you don’t have to wait for updates from the IET via email or letter.
  • Your details are kept on a secure online system, using your IET log-in details.
  • With this more efficient, streamlined application process in place, the IET can process more applications and recognise more engineers working at professional levels.

Paper applications will continue to be accepted – please see associated fees below.
