Changing Occupational Category?
Chartered is awarded across the three occupational categories of Associate, Technologist and Professional Engineer. Often members who are Associates and Technologists will undertake work experience and study to change to the next category.
If you hold Chartered Status in one category, this will be removed if your occupational category changes and you will need to complete a new Chartered application for your new occupational category. This is also the case if you have started an application in one category and mid-application, change your category. Please contact the Member Services team for advice if you are in this situation.
