Hi Volunteers! As a volunteer, i introduced IET Membership to one of my friend. I advised him to send Mentee Registration Form to IET Mentoring. Because one needs a Mentor to process his / her application for IET Membership. But I was surprised when my friend inform me that IET Mentoring office says that you need to get IET Membership first, then Mentor will be provided for Registration as IEng. Strange. I think, a new comer needs Mentor not only for Registration but Membership too. What do you think?

Hello Nouman,

Thanks for your question. I can understand why you are confused.

You don't need to have a mentor to apply for membership or to become a member of the IET. The Mentoring service is a benefit for IET members only and it is so they can have support when applying for their professional registration.

You can be an IET member and not be professionally registered, but if you want to become professionally registered you have to be a member (if that makes sense).

However, If your friend needs any help with their membership application then i'm sure a member of staff will assist them.
