National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technologies (NICET)


Since the Institute was founded in 1961, more than 121,000 technicians and technologists have met NICET's rigorous certification criteria, and the number grows rapidly as more employers and local and state governments rely on NICET certification to measure the qualifications of their workforce.

NICET requires professional development through recertification. Once certified, the certificant tracks continuing professional development (CPD) activities according a point scale set up by NICET. For each certification, the certificant must demonstrate professional growth by documenting that they have established 90 CPD points by the end of that three (3) year period.

Policy #30 on the NICET website defines “additional education” as efforts undertaken to advance, broaden, and enhance the certificant's technical knowledge and job skills. This could range from taking a college course to company sponsored in-house training session. Please note that NICET will not pre-approve courses for CPD points. It is the sole responsibility of the certificant to assure that training activities meet the NICET requirements, particularly the requirement that the additional education represents professional development for that individual; in other words, it must increase the certificant's knowledge -- not merely cover what should already be known.

Please see Policy #30 for more details. Visit the NICET website at http://www.nicet.org/about/policy30.cfm for the full policy overview.
