ICME has three main grades of membership: Member, Professional Member and Fellow. In addition, students can join at a reduced rate until they complete their studies and there is a separate membership form that students can use that is available from ICME. The following guidelines should aid applicants in the selection of the appropriate grade of membership. These are only a brief guide; please contact the ICME membership department for more detailed advice. Members are authorised to place the following designatory letters after their name:
Any person, 18 years or over, with an interest in the cast metals industry. No formal qualifications or experience
are necessary to become a Member, but you are entitled to all the benefits of membership. Reduced rates are
available for those under 25. Free membership for all apprentices.
PROFESSIONAL MEMBER (Prof MICME)
You should have relevant qualifications (to level 3 or equivalent) plus experience or have approved experience and training.
This grade is for senior individuals in the industry who also have the relevant training and experience and have obtained a position of senior responsibility and held this position for at least three years.
For those undertaking an approved course of full or part-time study, including an apprenticeship, leading to a recognised qualification. Membership is free for apprentices.
