Which membership grade is best for me?

We offer a range of membership grades from Student, for those just embarking on their careers, through to Chartered Member and Fellowship, for experts in their fields. The most suitable grade for you is determined by your background, competence and professional experience, which are, in turn, determined by our Competency Framework.

The Competency Framework outlines the competencies necessary to establish the grade of membership a prospective member is likely to be awarded. And for those still gaining knowledge and skills, we offer Student and Qualifying membership grades. For more information and details of how to apply select a membership grade from the menu on the right.
