Questions you might have

Yes, you can apply to become a Technical Member or a Registered Member.

You must be able to demonstrate knowledge of ergonomics in at least one area for Technical Membership, and in five areas for Registered Membership. Your application will usually involve keeping a log book of the work you undertake during your years as an Associate.

You should read the information about Technical or Registered Membership as soon as you become an Associate Member.
