What is the best time to apply for Section B?
If you just passed Section A of AMIE exams then you must apply for Section B registration as early as possible. If you apply late, You will be left with less time (less than 6 years depending upon how late you apply). You will get Section B registration form from IEI or you may join our Section B registration package.
While filling Section B registration form for AMIE exams, one must complete certificate of engagement section in the form. This is absolute necessary. However if certifying engineer is not a member of IEI (FIE/MIE/AMIE) then you may skip his membership number and simply put a dash (-) in the column.
I have passed AMIE completely. Now I wish to do AMIE in different branch. Is it possible?
After passing AMIE, just wait for Associate Membership. Your number will start as AM-***. Then register for AMIE (Section B).
