Registered Science Technician (RSciTech)

Becoming a Registered Science Technician allows you to use the post-nominal letters “RSciTech” after your name, highlighting your level of knowledge and expertise to your employers, colleagues, and customers.

Registered Science Technician (RSciTech)

Registered Science Technicians work with minimal supervision in technical roles, delivering essential scientific services and support within laboratories, schools and universities, hospitals and in many other workplaces. 

“Completing my professional registration for RSciTech has allowed me to further my CPD and gain Science knowledge in other areas. This will assist me in my day to day role as a Water Regulations Inspector in relation to any Water Quality Issues that arise. I would encourage others to become professionally registered and to gain the recognition within their own sector.
