Upgrading your membership enhances your professional reputation, allowing you more opportunities and increasing the trust your clients have in you.. If you believe you meet the required competencies and deserve the recognition, status and esteem that come with a higher grade, you can upgrade your CABE membership in two ways:
To upgrade from either a Chartered grade to another Chartered grade e.g. (Chartered Member to Chartered Fellow) or between non-Chartered grades (e.g. Technician to Associate), then you can complete the Membership upgrade application form below.
If you wish to upgrade from a non-Chartered grade to a Chartered grade e.g. Graduate to Chartered Member, Associate to Member Chartered Building Engineer etc., then you will need to complete the usual processes for awarding Chartered Membership including passing a Professional Interview and completing either the Principal Entry, Graduate Portfolio or Equivalent Membership routes.
Those upgrading their membership are required to pay a £55 non-refundable administration fee.
