Would you like professional registration as a fire engineer? The IFE is licensed by the Engineering Council and, if you are appropriately qualified and experienced, you could be registered as a Chartered Engineer, an Incorporated Engineer or an Engineering Technician. If you have recently graduated and want recognition of your qualifications whilst you build your experience as a fire engineer, you could become an Interim registrant.
IFE's Engineering Council Liason Officer had this to say about our Professional Review Interview process; "I was impressed by the conduct of the interviews and the standard of interviewing and was completely in agreement with the decisions reached and the reasoning behind them". January 2015
