Fellowship is the Institute's most senior grade of membership, and demonstrates a firm commitment to the highest standards of personal development and professional status. It also provides the entitlement to stand for election to the Institute's Board of Directors, where you can make a real difference to your Institute and profession.
Many employers value continued learning as a core competency as it builds upon an individual's knowledge, skills, confidence and credibility within the profession and their organisation.
Election to Fellowship
Fellowship is open to all full members of the Institute who hold the MIRM designation. It is achieved by demonstrating the achievement of 250 Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points and having at least five years risk management experience, two of which must have been achieved while a Member of the Institute.
The CPD scheme is based on a simple points formula. You may undertake any of the activities set out in the CPD table and when 250 points have been achieved you may apply for Fellowship. There is no time limit imposed. You may collect points at a rate that fits you and your own career plan. Equally activities undertaken in years prior to your election as a full Member also count towards your Fellowship.
CPD points must be accumulated through activities under at least three different sections of your choice, but you can accumulate points from more than three sections if you wish.
The CPD table is a guide and is not an exhaustive list. If you have undertaken other risk management related activities which you think may entitle you to CPD points, please include this information on your application form, together with supporting evidence. A copy of the application form can be downloaded here. When making an application for Fellowship, please ensure that you submit full documentary evidence to support your CPD points.
