- Receive professional recognition: The Science Council has established this new register to ensure professional recognition and development for technicians working across science from education to industry.
- Demonstrate your commitment to your profession: By maintaining your RSciTech status registration stays valid throughout your career and demonstrates your commitment to your own development.
