RITTech is professional registration for IT technicians, an independent public register for the people who work in IT. RITTech sets the industry standard for technical skills and conduct, recognising and validating your competence in just seven letters. If you work in tech and you care about doing things properly, you understand the impact of your work and you’re keeping your skills up to date, then RITTech is for you.
Part RITTech Recognition
Part RITTech Recognition is your first step on the path to professional registration. If you’re just starting out in your IT career, having passed a digital T-level qualification, then Part RITTech Recognition is for you. It gives you a badge of recognition, showing the industry you’re serious about your career in tech and about developing your skills and one day becoming a Chartered IT Professional (CITP).
Advanced RITTech is a step up from RITTech registration — and a step closer to Chartered IT Professional (CITP). If you’re a talented and ambitious technologist, committed to developing your skills, growing your influence, and meeting high industry standards, then Advanced RITTech registration is for you. Take the step up and underline your reputation as a trusted IT professional.
How to apply
Part RITTech Recognition
To achieve Part RITTech Recognition, you’ll firstly need to have passed a Digital T Level qualification. From there, it’s quick and easy to apply — just follow these steps:
- take a picture or screenshot of your Digital T Level result
- send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
That’s it! We’ll let you know when we’ve received the image of your qualification result and, once validated, we’ll award you with Part RITTech Recognition.
There are two routes to RITTech registration: accredited and experiential.
If you hold an accredited qualification, great news! You can take the accredited route to registration which means completing this application form with your details and the details of your qualification, then submitting it via MyBCS.
Don’t worry if you don’t have an accredited qualification as you can demonstrate your technical knowledge and experience in a written application instead.
- Firstly, check you have the required competencies — if you interact with digital systems in a professional role, it’s highly likely you’re eligible.
- Next, you need to identify a supporter, someone more senior than you to back up the information you give us. Check if your boss will be happy to do this... there are no phone calls, just a simple email exchange, all done in under five minutes.
All good? Now you’re ready to complete the application form which asks a few questions designed to get the right level of information from you. It should only take an hour or so to do.
Here’s a useful guide to completing your application or why not come along to one of our online RITTech workshops where we’ll walk you through the application process and provide tips for applying successfully.
Once you’ve completed the form simply submit it via MyBCS. We’ll get back to you within 14 days with the outcome of your application.
