Chartered IT Professional (CITP) status will soon be available to IET members who meet the established criteria.
IET members will be able to apply for CITP status through the IET from summer 2013, as the first step to joining the Register of Chartered IT Professionals.
CITP status, and the Certificates of Current Competence awarded to those who gain it, has been developed to demonstrate that holders have a breadth of knowledge across the whole of IT, with competence in their specialism.
It also reflects an enhanced understanding of the business in which holders operate. Certificates of Current Competence have to be revalidated every five years.
More information will be available from the IET from June 2013.
