EngTechNow is a new campaign to raise awareness within the engineering profession of the value of registration as an Engineering Technician (EngTech). It was announced by Prime Minister David Cameron in June 2013.
The core aim of the EngTechNow campaign is to place EngTech professional registration – and the standards by which EngTech is assessed – at the heart of the engineering profession, prompting a step-change in the recognition, adoption and ongoing use of the EngTech title.
Engineering technicians play a crucial and invaluable role across most industry sectors, making them vital to the future prosperity of the UK. At present, there is a real need to help spur growth in the numbers of professionally registered engineering technicians to ensure the high standards necessary to meet future demand.
PEME Reliability Engineer, Laurie-ann Smith is supporting the campaign by sharing her case study to support the drive to increase awareness and uptake of EngTech registration. Laurie-ann’s story is now live on the EngTechNow website. If you are interested, you can also follow the EngTechNow campaign on Twitter @EngTech_Now.
