Engineering Technicians to become qualified through CIHT

The official approval of the Institution’s Engineering Technician license was announced this week by the Engineering Council, along with the successful renewal of the licences for both IEng and CEng.

Engineering Technicians play a crucial role in a range of jobs across the Highways & Transportation sector. The post-nominal letters ‘EngTech’ are nationally and internationally recognised as a standard of competence and are highly valued in the industry.

The EngTech award clearly demonstrates that the holder has experience, drive and commitment and is a skilled, registered professional.

It also provides individuals with the opportunity to develop their career; as they progress in their profession they may choose to become qualified as an Incorporated Engineer (IEng) or a Chartered Engineer (CEng).

Sue Stevens, Director of Education & Membership said ‘We are delighted that the Engineering Council has extended our CEng and IEng licences and our licence to accredit courses for another full five year period.

“Take-up of our professional qualifications continues to grow and the addition of EngTech will provide our members with a complete progression route through to Chartered Engineer status.”

Over the next few weeks CIHT will be highlighting the reasons why those working in the highways and transportation sector should look to become professionally qualified. More information will be launched in due course.
