Fellow Membership (FIEMA)
Fellow Membership of IEMA is the highest level of professional recognition offered by the Institute. Fellowship signifies that the individual has demonstrated substantial achievement in the environmental management and assessment field.
The application for Fellow entails a written submission and an assessment undertaken by two Fellow Membership Assessors. Successful candidates are entitled to use the suffix FIEMA.
Currently there is only one route to achieving Fellow Membership; this is the Standard Route (progression through the grades).
Whereas Full Membership of IEMA demonstrates the application of knowledge and understanding through experience, Fellowship builds on this by demonstrating substantial achievement in the profession. The Standard route to Fellowship requires candidates to achieve Full Membership of IEMA first before applying for Fellowship.
