IHE Professional Certificates and Diplomas are ideal for individuals who have been working in the industry but haven’t been able to obtain an academically endorsed qualification.
There are two routes to achieving a Professional Certificate or Diploma through the IHE – the Course Route or the Knowledge Based Route.
A structured training programme will deliver the skills and information required for achievement of an IHE Professional Certificate or Diploma and this can also lay the foundation for Professional Registration.
Firstly, you should decide which level you wish to attain and then attend the dedicated training course. The IHE offers qualifications at two levels through the course route:

All courses are delivered throughout the year in the clean, contemporary setting of our Birmingham office space and meeting rooms. This centrally located venue in Birmingham Brindleyplace gives excellent connectivity across the UK. Courses are also run at our main London office, regionally and as an in-house option.
You will receive a Certificate of Attendance with CPD just for attending the course. Once you succesfully complete the course you can then apply for the Professional Certificate or Diploma.
All Certificate level courses have an additional day set aside to make an application for EngTech Professional Registration for delegates who have successfully passed the course.
Full details of each course, their competencies and assessment can be found on each individual course page.
Knowledge Based Route
Professional Certificates or Professional Diplomas can also be achieved by candidates who feel they already have sufficient skills, training and experience and can demonstrate this by submitting an Individual Portfolio of Evidence, which documents how they have achieved the competencies required.
If you wish to follow the Knowledge Based Route, full details of how to apply for a Professional Certificate or Diploma can be found in the guidance documents below.
