Why become an Interim Registrant for Incorporated Engineer?

If you have attained a qualification that is accepted for Incorporated Engineer registration but have yet to gain sufficient experience in the workplace to meet all of the UK-SPEC standards, then interim registration is an important step for you. Once you have built up sufficient experience (5 years is indicative) then your application for full Incorporated Engineer status will be streamlined.

For details of what the Engineering Council and registration is all about see their video .
