What type of membership are you eligible for?
Affiliate membership is for students who have an interest in IT and who are now completing an IT course with the end goal of entering the industry, or are already professionals working within or alongside organisations who have signed up to an IT course to upskill their current abilities.
Associate membership is similar to Affiliate, with the addition of needing evidence of a year’s IT work experience, an up-to-date CV showcasing relevant tasks, responsibilities and tools used, as well as a reference who can validate your experience.
