The National Engineering Register (NER) serves a wide range of engineering specialties. You have the option of registering as an Engineering Associate, Engineering Technologist, Professional Engineer, or Non-Member if you intend to use the NER.
Select an engineering specialization. Before you apply, ask yourself these questions.
Do you have at least four years of relevant full-time post-graduation work experience and five or more years of recent, relevant full-time work experience?
Do you have two referees that can attest to the job you've completed?
Do you possess the required qualifications?
You must exhibit the NER Direct competencies listed below
CONFRONT ETHICAL CONCERNS, PRACTICE COMPETENTLY, AND DRAW UP SAFE AND SUSTAINABLE SOLUTIONS
Utilize local engineering expertise to identify, evaluate, and manage risk.
In order to complete this phase, think back on your professional history and pinpoint examples of prior work that show you are proficient in each of the NER Direct competencies. As part of your online application, you must finish the self-assessment form pertinent to the type of your occupation, such as professional engineer, engineering technologist, or engineering associate.
If you're a participant:
Situations, issues, and chances you have encountered
Specialized expertise or abilities you have utilized
