Is Associate membership right for me?
Associate membership is a great way to demonstrate your commitment and the level you have already achieved in the resource and waste management profession.
Associate membership is perfect for you if have any of the following or equivalent qualifications: two A levels, a Higher National Certificate, a full wastes management COTC at NVQ level 4 awarded by WAMITAB, City and Guilds or SQA or an equivalent qualification and have a minimum of two years relevant continuous experience in wastes management.
If you have other qualifications at a similar level, please do contact us to see if they meet our entry criteria.
What are the benefits of Associate membership?
Associate members receive many of the benefits that other CIWM members receive. A full list of benefits can be found here. In addition, Associate members can use the designatory letter AssocMCIWM, which are instantly recognisable as a connection to CIWM, demonstrating passion and commitment to the wastes management industry. This will help demonstrate to a potential employer that you are committed to a career in the waste and resources profession.
