You application is sent to two CIMA fellows for assessment. They award associate membership if they believe you have gained the necessary knowledge.
They will explain their decision if they do not award membership, and let you know if additional information or experience is needed. If your application is deferred, you will not be required to pay the application fee again.
We acknowledge receipt of your application, and will write to you within six to eight weeks with the assessors' decision.
Our assessors are able to interpret and evaluate the breadth of work you have recorded. It is still worth applying even if you feel you lack practical experience in some areas.
See the current membership application fee.
