Engineering Council Registration
The engineering profession in the United Kingdom is regulated by the Engineering Council through engineering institutions that are licensed to put suitably qualified persons on the Engineering Council’s Register of Engineers. The Register has three sections:
- Chartered Engineer
- Incorporated Engineer
- Engineering Technician
- The IFE has over 11,500 Members in 23 countries. Established in 1918, the professional network is not only extensive internationally, but it includes a very wide range of disciplines, which vary from Firefighting, Fire Protection, Technical and Engineering.
- The Institution of Fire Engineers produces a journal for all members. The Institution publishes a number of books and monographs and offers a substantial discount on these publications.
- Individual members can benefit greatly by joining the Institution. Those wishing to further their careers and achieve higher academic standards may do by progressing through the range of examinations set by the Institution.
- The Institution publishes a full and comprehensive syllabus for all examinations and several further education establishments run study courses for each of the examinations. Similarly, where the local study is not available, some of the commercial correspondence schools support the examinations and run study courses by mail.
