Professional registration with ‘SR21’ provides independent recognition of your achievements and maintain the exact standards required to join the global community of professional scientists and science technicians. Many scientists today work across different areas of science; for instance, combining computing with sociology or physics with physiology. The SR21’s professional registers are for all practising scientists, independent of discipline.
Registration as a professional scientist provides professional recognition for those working in scientific and higher technical roles. Registered professional scientists (PSci) and professional science technicians (PSciTech), represent the best professional scientists working worldwide. Leading teams and departments, use their specialist knowledge and broader scientific understanding to develop and improve the application of science and technology.
Registration as a ‘PSci’ or ‘PSciTech’, reflects the wide variety of sciences and their practice, recognising high levels of skill and experience, independent of discipline. Once registered, you must maintain your status through meeting continuing professional development (CPD) requirements each year. As an applicant, you need to demonstrate your competence across various areas by providing examples from your working life, usually within the last five years. You will also need to provide professional references that can vouch for your knowledge and experience. They are then assessed, on paper and in a face to face interview.
