Under the previous MBCS criteria, you’ve already shown that you have five or more years’ experience working in the IT industry or you hold equivalent accredited qualifications.

Now the membership criteria have changed, we’re inviting you to take another look at becoming Chartered - we’ve developed a streamlined process and new, clearer guidelines to support you.

There’s no change to the standard itself, but if you have over five years’ experience and are working in a responsible role you could gain additional credentials and formal recognition of your experience and contribution to the IT profession with CITP.

What’s more, to say thank you for your continuing support and commitment to BCS, we’ll also waive your £160 CITP application fee*.

Sounds great, how do I apply?

To become a Chartered IT Professional, you’ll still be required to demonstrate your knowledge, skills and current competence in line with the CITP standard.

Here’s how you do it:

  1. Get your CV up to date - it’ll need to show you have the appropriate level of responsibility and autonomy in the workplace
  2. Complete this CITP application form providing written evidence of your current competence in the industry
  3. Identify a supporter who can verify your application accurately reflects your role and experience - they must themselves be a member of a professional body with a code of conduct that they follow

Once your CV, application form and supporter information are ready, head to MyBCS and follow the link to submit your application.

When you get to the checkout, enter CITPMEMFEE to waive your application fee - you’ll just need to pay your annual £46 registration fee.
