COREN Registration – Calling all UK Chartered (EC UK registered) Engineers.
On Friday, 2nd June, Dr Eberechi Weli (TGNF Coordinator) and Barrister Adegoke Oshunniyi (TGNF Programmes Manager) paid a courtesy visit to the President of the Council for Regulation of Engineering in Nigeria (COREN) at the COREN Headquarters in Abuja.
The visit was to seek collaborative working arrangements between TGNF and COREN to facilitate and support TGNF members (Diaspora Engineering Professionals) through registration as Engineers in Nigeria thereby demystifying the registration process.
Outcome – The COREN Registration panel will be held in July. All TGNF UK Chartered Engineers who are interested in registration in Nigeria (and practice as registered engineers in Nigeria) can take the following steps to achieving “Engineer” designations in Nigeria.
- Complete the COREN online registration
