Why become an Interim Registrant for Chartered?

If you have attained a qualification that is accepted for Chartered 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 Chartered Engineer status will be streamlined.
