Supporting your application

We strongly encourage you to make use of the additional resources we have created to support you in the application process. If you are still a little unsure, then visit the ‘Which Membership grade is best for me?’ page or contact us to discuss your situation.

Whatever membership grade you choose, all successful applicants are required to abide by our Member Regulations and Code of Professional Conduct, so it is a good idea to download and read these before submitting your application:

If you are applying for Qualifying, Associate or Full membership you are required to assess your current level of competence using the CIEEM Competency Framework. We would also advise you to watch the short video CIEEM’s Competency Framework.

In addition, applicants applying for Associate or Full membership are strongly encouraged to read the Guidance for Individuals applying for membership and watch the short video for more information about the application and assessment processes.

Applicants may also find these Examples of Appropriate Justifications for Claimed Levels of Competence useful.

The ‘Myth-Busting the Membership Application Process’ In Practice article provides answers and clarification on a number frequently asked questions to do with the application process.

All sponsors of applicants are required to read the Guidance for Sponsors and are strongly encouraged to familiarise themselves with the other documents above.
