Benefits of gaining a professional registration for employees

  • Letters after your name on your business card, email signature etc
  • Looks impressive on your CV and distinguishes you from other applicants
  • Identifies you as having competences that employers value
  • Indicates that your competence and commitment to professionalism, quality and customers has been assessed by other engineering professionals
  • Demonstrates that your competence may be compared with standards applicable in other parts of the world
  • Confirms that your commitment to professionalism is underwritten by the support of a national engineering institution licensed by the Engineering Council
  • International recognition of your qualifications

As a result, registrants often find that:

  • It is easier to gain promotion or a new job
  • Their pay compares favourably with non-registered engineers and increasingly against other qualified professionals
  • They have greater influence within their organisation and industry
  • Their engineering credentials are respected in most parts of the world
  • They have access to a network of similarly qualified and experienced experts in their field - through the ITP
  • Their employers benefit as increasingly, tendering or post-tender contract compliance requires key members of the project team to have professional registration

In addition, membership of the ITP gives additional benefits:

  • Access to ITP’s quarterly magazines:  The Journal & Telecoms Professional – to help you stay up to date with what is happening in our industry
  • The opportunity to contribute to these magazines
