Information and Communications Technology Technician

Professionally registered Information and Communications Technology Technicians (ICTTechs) work in a variety of environments.

These include, but are not limited to: offices, development labs, data and operational centres, field environments, customer premises and manufacturing.

They support a range of functions which utilise ICT solutions, and hardware and software components. Examples of functions include, but are not limited to: design, development, implementation, installation, operation, problem solving and security of ICT applications, products, services and/or infrastructures.


Registration is open to anyone who can demonstrate the required professional competences and commitment.

  • Typically, someone who has completed an ICT Advanced Apprenticeship or who has other ICT practitioner qualifications at Level 3 (SCQF 6) with appropriate working experience would be considered competent at this level.
  • Individuals without formal qualifications may also apply for ICTTech registration, by demonstrating they have acquired the necessary competence through substantial working experience.  SFIA Level 3 provides descriptions of typical responsibility levels and working relationships that reflect the level of competence required by ICTTechs.
