The Registered Analyst scheme was developed by NAFEMS in order to provide a way for analysts to measure and track their competency. Part of the EASIT2 project was to build and develop on this scheme and evolve the Analysis and Simulation Passport (now renamed and launched as the Professional Simulation Engineer (PSE).
The Scheme is based on the simple concept that the qualification of Registered Analyst (RA) is achieved by an independent assessment of workplace competence, which may be at two levels, either ‘Standard’ or ‘Advanced’. This requires the accumulation of workplace experience in the specification, planning, execution and interpretation of numerical analysis applied to design, simulation or product verification, and adequate performance in executing these functions to a high standard.
