Professional Registration through the IHE – for FREE

  • Wednesday July 19, 2023

If you are considering going forward for your Professional Review (PR), there’s no better time than now as the IHE will be offering free PRs for any member wishing to undertake them during 2023.

Becoming a professionally registered engineer demonstrates your high standard of competence and commitment. By choosing to register, you set yourself apart as an engineer with high standards and also demonstrates your commitment to maintain that competence in the future.

Whether you’re entering the engineering profession or looking for the next step to progress your career, gaining one of the professional registration titles can allow you to enjoy the benefits of greater mobility and career progression. Registration also provides a firm foundation of ethics, sustainability and professionalism.

Registration is open to any practising engineer or technician who can demonstrate the required competence – what matters is the standard you’ve reached, not the route you took to get there.

President Martin Polland said: ‘‘If you have been putting off becoming professionally qualified, then this year should be the year to end that. Help is on hand and workshops will be available for anyone who needs advice.’
