The EngTech professional qualification is open to anyone who can demonstrate the required professional competences and commitment. You must be a member of a licenced Professional Engineering Institution, such as IPEM. You can apply for membership at the same time as registration.
Some applicants will have successfully completed an Advanced/Modern Apprenticeship or other work based learning programmes. This can lead directly to Engineering Technician registration.
Or, alongside appropriate working experience, they will hold:
an Edexcel BTEC Level 3 Certificate or Diploma in Engineering
or a qualification, approved by their professional engineering institution, in engineering set at level 3 (or above) in the Qualifications and Credit Framework or at level 6 (or above) in the Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework
Individuals without formal qualifications may also apply for EngTech registration by demonstrating they have acquired the necessary competence through substantial working experience. UK-SPEC provides details of the competence required for EngTech registration.
The Engineering Council provide a useful eBook with further details of EngTech registration.
Check the Engineering Council EngTech page for more details.
