Welcome to our Apprentice and Technician professional community. We've gathered together some handy links to help you find your way around our website, but if you've got any questions about apprenticeships, technical specialisms or your IET membership please do start a conversation in our forums.

Entries are now open for our IET Apprentice and Technician of the Year awards!
This is really worth checking out as there’s a £1,000 cash prize for the winners. Last year's apprentice winner was James Garnham (pictured right), an apprentice test engineer in the Solution Validation Services Centre of Excellence at Cisco Systems Ltd.
Becoming professionally registered
If you’re currently an apprentice and you’re wondering how you can become a TMIET, we’ve got that covered too. You can apply for EngTech (Engineering Technician) and TMIET (Technician Member of the IET) through a simple, streamlined route. Find out how.
Finally, if you’re either an apprentice or technician and you’re not on our IET Signature programme, you really should get in touch and transfer your membership. Signature will help get you move up to the next stage of your career (for a special price rate – so it’s important that you’re on the right package because otherwise you might be paying too much for your membership!).
