Yes, you can apply to become a Technical Member or a Registered Member. You will need a minimum of two years of work experience of ergonomics and human factors for Technical Membership and 4 years for Registered Membership. 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.

£96 per year. That’s just £8 per month if you spread the cost with monthly direct debit payments. This payment option is available to you at your first renewal after one year.

No, you will need to upgrade to Registered Member first, as only Registered Members and Fellows are eligible for Chartered status.
