Apprentice membership will only be granted if the individual does not qualify by education and/or experience for any other class of membership.

Proof of apprenticeship scheme and completion date is required when you apply. This should be available from your apprenticeship provider, employer or institution.

Once granted, Apprentice membership has a maximum validity period of four years before an individual is expected to apply for transfer to another class of membership. Any individual who does not apply for transfer after 4 years may be automatically removed from membership.
