Upgrading your membership to full or associate level membership

You will need to have appropriate insurance, character reference, diploma and ID ready to upload. Pay the rate applicable for the membership you are applying for and then email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to explain that you have applied for a new membership level and that you need a refund (worked out pro-rata on the number of months remaining) on your student or associate level membership. Please include your bank details so we can action the refund. Your new membership will then be active for 1 year from that point giving you access to resources and allowing for full CPD activity to be completed.
