Along with other changes, IEMA launched the new Practitioner membership grade last month. For existing Associate members, the change has resulted in an automatic upgrade.

Feedback from members, stakeholders and the media on the changes launched on 13 June has been very positive. Members who have become the first PIEMA members have said the grade better reflects the nature of their work, and their levels of knowledge and experience.

Because of the value and relevancy of this new level of membership, demand to join or upgrade to Practitioner has been extremely strong. Similarly, the new Associate standard is now much more attractive to those at the start of their environment and sustainability career because it provides the right recognition and opportunities for the entry-level roles.

Both Associate and Practitioner memberships are achieved by successfully completing an online exam (the Practitioner assessment also requires an assessment of competence). Now that the membership standards have been published, applications are open and the first exams will be taken on 1 August.

If you are aiming to achieve AIEMA or PIEMA status via the exam, visit iema.net/membership-2016 to apply. After completing the online form, you can select your examination date and use the new IEMA Skills Map to support your preparation studies.

If you have any questions about applying for Associate or Practitioner membership, please contact professional.standards@iema.net.
