CEng PRI (Professional Registration Interview) Timeline - Significant Delays

Dear Sir/Madam,

I hope this message finds you well.

I have been experiencing a significant delay in my CEng PRI (Professional Registration Interview) arrangement. I wonder if anyone else is in a similar situation. I would be grateful for any advice or information from anyone who has been through a similar process. 

Here is my timeline: 

* 11/2023: Submitted my CEng application; Paid IET membership fees on same day per request. It mentioned that it may take 20-22 weeks for the PRI arrangement (assume is 22 week, that will be May 2024 latest)

* 01/2024: CEng Application Acknowledgement

* 02/2024: progressed to Professional Review Interview

* 03/2024: I asked for an update on PRI arrangement

* 03/2024: IET replied: "We are fully booked for April and are aiming to hold your interview in May 2024."

* 05/2024: I asked for an update on the PRI arrangement again

07/2024Today. No any response, no any updates. 

I am aware that IET is volunteer-based, but I feel that this process could be improved. As an IET member, I feel that the member experience could be enhanced. This delay is preventing me from making my work/travel plan for the next stage, as the PRI "may" come at any time.

Could anyone advise me on how I should proceed? I would be very grateful for any advice.

  • Hi Tengfei

    As discussed yesterday offline, we are experiencing some delays in securing dates for applicants in some discipline areas due to the availability of volunteers Interviewers.  As agreed with you, we have now scheduled a date for your Professional Review Interview in July.

    If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.


  • Hi Karen, many thanks for your swift action, it means a lot. Much appreciated.
