RegTech advisors at Diamond were treated to a briefing on the latest professional register, RiTTech, offered by BCS, the Chartered Institute of IT. The RiTTech register is aimed at anyone working in an IT role required to do technical work on a day to day basis. The 2 main differences with the IT registers compared to that of the Engineering and Scientific professional registers are that, professional assessment is an online process and requires refreshing every 3 years.
Outlining how the register operates, Richard Lester, Director of IT Technician Programme, reported that:
"the online assessment covers 18 different IT role families that span the whole digital industry; from business analysis, digital marketing, IT service desk to infrastructure, software and network support".
Prospect, through the RegTech Project, is working with the Diamond Light Source Ltd's Head of IT to progress the opportunities for employees and recruit a number of RiTTech RegTech Advisors.
