All engineering professionals, whether academically qualified or not, can apply to register for one of three levels of registration, Chartered Engineer, Incorporated Engineer and Engineering Technician, provided they can demonstrate they hold appropriate responsibility and exercise the competences identified for each level. You will find full details of how to go about this by clicking on the tabs on the left.  

Accreditation is the process of recognising both academic qualifications and professional development schemes (whether civilian or military) against the benchmarks established for each level of registration. Those whose academic qualifications are accredited as meeting the requirements in full will find the re-registration process more speedy and can take up Interim Registration whilst they are working towards competence at an appropriate level. 

Those who undertake an accredited Professional Development Scheme enjoy the advantage of employer support in achieving the competences needed.
