Professional registration

What is professional registration?

Registration is awarded by licensed bodies who represent the Science Council or Engineering Council and is based on knowledge, competence and commitment to professionalism.

Professional registration is an important milestone for any technician. It establishes your proven knowledge, understanding and competence. In particular, registration shows your peers and employers that you have demonstrated a commitment to professional standards, and to developing and enhancing competence. What’s more, registration is valid throughout your career because it allows you to continually update your new skills and knowledge.

Each professional register has specific criteria to meet, which usually involves gathering proof of experience, training and and can include previous qualifications.

What are the benefits of becoming professionally registered?
  • recognition as a professional in your field
  • improved self-motivation, career opportunities and salary prospects
  • greater influence within your organisation and industry
  • confirmation that you are highly competent in your field
  • connecting you with innovative, influential and inspirational people
  • international recognition of your qualifications
