Registration scheme to boost professional standards in telecoms
Joint IET-ITP scheme brings professional registration to telecoms industry.
Members of the ITP will be able to apply for professional registration through the IET, because it is a licensing authority. ITP members who join the scheme will be entitled to use the designations CEng, IEng, EngTech or ICTTech after their name, once awarded registration.
Brendan O’Mahony, the ITP chief executive, said: “Responses from our online survey and discussions with corporate members revealed an extremely positive response about the benefits of being professionally recognised for their skills and experience. I am delighted that ITP members now have the opportunity to be awarded registrations through this new ITP service.”
Robin McGill, IET chief executive, said: “Increasingly, the IET is forming partnerships with other institutions as part of a collaborative approach to raising professional standards across the industry worldwide.
“Through this agreement we are able to complement the offering to ITP members and provide them with professional registration that has not been available in the past, boosting their professional competence and the professionalism of the industry.
Andrew Ramsay, chief executive officer of the Engineering Council UK, added: “We are pleased to see the IET providing registration support to the ITP through this agreement. This should enable the ITP to offer an even wider spectrum of services to its members.”
