Upgrade your membership

The goal of most of those who join the Institute is to reach the Chartered grade of Member (MCIOB). This qualification is validated by a thorough examination of a candidate’s strengths and weaknesses, and is therefore recognised throughout the world as proof of expertise.

Our non-Chartered grades are really intermediate stages on the way to the MCIOB badge. If you are already a non-Chartered member then you may be already eligible to upgrade to MCIOB by completing the Professional Review, which you can read more about here.

If you're already MCIOB and have worked at a senior level in the industry for at least five years then you could be suitable for Fellowship or FCIOB. This is the highest grade of membership at the CIOB. You can read more about upgrading to Fellowship by following the link on the right hand side of this page.
