DTL Lecturer gains coveted Engineering Technician registration from the British Engineering Council
09 April 2019
Lee Morgan, a Senior Energy Lecturer at Develop Training Ltd (DTL), has gained registration as an Engineering Technician from the Engineering Council. The achievement allows him to sit on the British Engineering Council and the membership panel of the Institution of Gas Engineers and Managers (IGEM).
Registration will allow Lee to make input into new developments in the industry, including training, and to get feedback from fellow engineers in the gas and wider engineering industry about the issues they face.
To earn the EngTech registration, he had to demonstrate competency in multiple engineering disciplines. Lee, who is also DTL’s lead Internal Quality Assurer, will now be able to attend conferences, sit on regular council meetings and take part in industry forums.
A Member Manager of IGEM, he gained his affiliate membership of the British Engineering Council through that organisation, further demonstrating DTL’s commitment to the gas industry. The training company counts some of the biggest household names in the gas and energy industry among its customers.
How will registration benefit DTL's customers?
Participation in these and other forums will benefit DTL customers and learners by highlighting new gas industry regulations, of which about 20 come into force each year. The training company will then be able to modify and develop training courses so that learners are taught the latest compliance knowledge.
What is the British Engineering Council?
The Engineering Council is the UK regulatory body for the engineering profession, holding the national registers of Engineering Technicians (EngTech), Incorporated Engineers (IEng), Chartered Engineers (CEng) and Information and Communications Technology Technicians (ICTTech).
It sets and maintains the internationally recognised standards of professional competence and ethics that govern the award and retention of these titles. This ensures that employers, government and wider society - both in the UK and overseas - can have confidence in the knowledge, experience and commitment of professionally registered engineers and technicians.
Why become a registered Engineer?
Professional registration provides a benchmark, giving the public, employers and their customers confidence that registered engineers and technicians have met globally recognised professional standards. To achieve registration, candidates’ competence and commitment are independently assessed in detail by their peers.
Registrants maintain the knowledge, skills and commitment required for today’s engineering and technological needs of today while also catering for the needs of future generations.
