Professional Registration and Accreditations

Professional Registration allows you to highlight your knowledge, understanding and competence. In particular, registration shows your peers and employer that you have demonstrated a commitment to professional standards, and to developing and enhancing competence.

Each Professional Register has specific criteria to meet, which usually involves gathering proof of experience, training and can include previous qualifications.

They are awarded by licensed professional bodies who represent the Science Council or Engineering Council and is based on knowledge, competence and commitment to professionalism.

The Science Council web pages have a huge amount of supporting information to help with filling out your professional registration application:
