You can find all of our membership grades below.

Ordinary Grades

Professional Grades

Professional (MICS)

Applications for professional recognition, and the right to use the post-nominal letters, MICS, must be accompanied by details of two referees familiar with the work and/or qualifications of the applicant. Ideally these should be a current or previous employer, or a current member of the society. You will be sent upgrade instructions with your welcome email.

Recognising a significant contribution to the ICT profession, the designation Fellow (FICS) is restricted to the most experienced and highly regarded existing members who have made a significant contribution to the profession or the ICS.

Chartered Status

Become a Chartered IT Professional (CITP) and promote your skills and dedication to IT. CITP also provides internationally recognised accreditation for your qualification.
