IET MEMBERSHIP

As some of you know I have an involvement with the IET and have been a member for many years.

There is a low visibility in the electrical installation industry of who the IET is and what the IET does. The usual response I get is "you are the people who publish the Wiring Regs" and nothing more.

I am involved with some work in understanding what people would want or know about the IET that would make them want to become a member, and also consider professional registration?

So I need your help please.

What would you like to know about the IET, and what you would want from the IET to make you consider joining? Have you thought about professional registration?

Honest views please and I promise to listen. If you do not want to say on a public forum then email me on info( the symbol for at) astutetechnicalservices.co.uk.

Thanks for your anticipated help.

if you are already a member I would also appreciate your views?

  • I paid an Associate Membership for several years and went to many IET Local Group meetings and some training sessions, including some run by different groups in other areas.

    However it went through a stage where there didn’t seem to be much happening and the Local Groups lost their mojo, to be honest you can go anyway without paying a membership fee anyway.

    Whilst at the Local Group meetings I discussed applying for Technician Membership, I actually have the City and Guilds Construction Technician Certificates and my lecturer at college was very involved with the Institute of Building and wanted me to apply for TnIOB, but after I left college I never got around to it.

    So all these years later I could possibly have had TIOB andTMIET as post nominals if I had actually got around to doing something about it, but I cannot see what benefits I would have gained.

    Anyway I stopped paying the Associate Membership.
