Which membership grade is best for me?

We offer a range of membership grades from Student and Qualifying, 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.

Our Competency Framework identifies the skills, knowledge and behaviours expected of those working in the profession, grouping them into four levels of increasing professional competence: Basic, Capable, Accomplished and Authoritative. Our membership grades reflect our members’ skills, experience and professional competence and recognise that, as your career develops, so too will your relationship with us.

For more information and details of how to apply select a membership grade from the menu on the right.
