Established in 1961, NICET is a non-profit organization providing recognition and certification for engineering technicians and technologists in the U.S.
All NICET programs are designed by industry experts to ensure that companies in engineering and technology fields have a qualified workforce. As a result, the institute greatly invests in its members by promoting their continuing professional development through job placement services that connect employers with highly qualified technicians and technologists.
For technicians, the program requires a written and multiple-choice test and documentation including a work history, recommendations, and usually a supervisor to verify your proficiency for certain skills.
For technologists, the certification requires a 4-year degree in a field related to engineering technology, and at the advanced level, a work history including references.
For a company, NICET certifications mean that any potential candidate with a NICET certification has been evaluated by an objective third party including committees of experts, and is guaranteed to have the qualifications necessary to fulfill your needs. This means that their quality of work—and ultimately the quality of the products and services that they perform—will be of the highest standards.
