The Nuclear Institute holds licences from the Engineering Council to register professionals as:
Benefits of Registering
- Identifying you as having competences that employers value
- Indicating that your competence and commitment to professionalism have been assessed by other engineering professionals
- Demonstrating that your competence may be compared with standards applicable in other parts of the world
- Confirming that your commitment to professionalism is underwritten by the support of a national engineering institution or society licensed by the Engineering Council
- International recognition of your qualifications.
As a result, registrants often find that:
- It is easier to gain promotion or a new job
- They have greater influence within their organisation and industry
- Their engineering credentials are respected in most parts of the world
- They have access to a network of similarly qualified and experienced experts in their field - through their Institution
- Their employers benefit as increasingly, tendering or post-tender contract compliance requires key members of the project team to have professional registration.
Institution membership offers additional benefits including:
- Access to continuous professional development
- Information - including a magazine, library facility and on-line resources
- Careers advice and employment opportunities
- Legal help lines
Whistleblowing Guidance for registrants with the Engineering Council
Members of the Nuclear Institute who are registered with the Engineering Council should understand their professional obligations with respect to whistleblowing and know where to go for guidance and advice. The Engineering Council has published a detailed whistleblowing guidance document which is available here.
The Engineering Council guidance document should be taken into consideration along with the Nuclear Institute Code of Conduct.
