The Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Professional Yachting Association (PYA) are working together towards a professional registration innovative supporting engineers working both at sea and on land. The aim is that these engineers gain internationally recognised qualifications, such as those of ‘chartered engineer’, ‘engineer technician’ and so forth.

The IET and PYA is therefore asking engineers to take a short online survey, where engineers can share their thoughts on what relevant support they feel is needed for engineers and technicians.

Any engineers in the superyacht industry are encouraged to take the survey, which can be found by clicking here.

“Your views are very important,” explains Simon Hodkinson, ETO of a 90m-plus motoryacht and co-chair of the ETO’s Expert Working Group. “They will help to shape how the support is provided to engineers employed in the superyacht and wider marine industry.”
