Company Based Registration

Company Based Registration is the perfect process for supporting an engineering team, within a company, through the professional registration process. The Institution offers a supported and aided scheme, which provides a Business Development Manager to your site to present the ‘benefits of’ and ‘how to’ regarding professional registration.

Suitable applicants will then be supported through the process step by step, with 1-2-1 advice sessions and interview preparation workshops.
An application review services from a Professional Development Consultant is also available.

Interviews for those who successfully progress through the application process can then be arranged on site, to ensure minimum disruption to business operation.

There is no cost for running the scheme described above. The only cost is the applicants' own application fee and annual membership subscription.

Support for Graduates and Apprentices

The Monitored Professional Development Scheme (MPDS) is the Institutions, approved and quality controlled route for graduate engineers to complete their initial professional development and work towards successfully achieving Incorporated or Chartered status.

The IMechE offer our Members access to Career Developer, our suite of online reporting tools, were you will be able to log and keep a track of your development and competence even if you change employers.

The Institution approves advanced engineering apprentice training schemes within Companies, Colleges and Training providers. There is no fee for doing this and it will make the application process for your apprentices much more straightforward, as we’ll already know what skills and experience they have gained. 
The aim being, to make it as simple as possible for apprentices to benefit from the extra endorsement of their skills that professional registration EngTech provides.
