The UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC) is published by the Engineering Council on behalf of the UK engineering profession. UK-SPEC describes the value of becoming registered as an Engineering Technician (EngTech), Incorporated Engineer (IEng) or Chartered Engineer (CEng) and the requirements that have to be met in order to gain these qualifications and gives examples of ways of doing this.
Individuals may progress from EngTech to IEng and from IEng to CEng through a process of life-long learning and career development.
Evidence of competence is the key requirement for progression, and often there will be a need for additional education and training to enable progression to be recognised. In support of this all of our courses have been mapped to UK-SPEC.
Each course displays a statement that attendance may contribute to an engineer’s portfolio of competence to demonstrate Initial Professional Development (IPD): a key component of the requirement for registration as a Chartered or Incorporated Engineer.
