If you have gained a higher level of qualification and/or additional experience since you joined the IMI, you may be eligible for an upgrade.
To understand the qualifications and experience required for each level of membership, please see 'Levels of IMI Membership'.
If you are upgrading from Affiliate level to Associate level and above, you will achieve additional professional recognition and be placed on the IMI Professional Register. The industry-wide Register demonstrates to your customers that you're continually keeping up to date with learning new skills and working practices. Keeping your skills and knowledge up to date is achieved through CPD and all members on the Professional Register commit to undertaking up to 90 credits of CPD over a three year period, the equivalent to about four days of training/learning per year. When you upgrade from Affiliate level, we’ll be in touch with information about what this means to you. Learn more about CPD by following the quick link for Training and Development.
You can apply to upgrade your membership, by following the steps below:
Please be aware that a £10.50 non-refundable application fee (for 2017/18) is required on application.
If you have any questions or want to know whether you're eligible for a upgrade, please contact the Membership & Professional Registration team on 01992 519025 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tax relief is available to members of the Institute of the Motor Industry. We are on an approved list of professional membership bodies and members are eligible to claim tax relief for their annual fee. Please follow the link for more information gov.uk/tax-relief-for-employees. If however the membership subscription is paid by your employer, there is no tax relief available.
