Whatever your training or experience, we have a membership category that’s right for you

Full Member
Full Members represent the most senior practitioners in the industry who have a minimum of ten years’ experience as well as a relevant professional qualification or who have completed our STEP Diploma or Essay Route.

Full Members of STEP have exclusive use of the TEP designation and STEP logo.
Associate Member
Associate Members have a good level of knowledge and experience, but don’t yet meet the criteria for Full Membership. Associate Members will be working towards completing the Exam or Essay Route.
Affiliate Member
Affiliate Members have undertaken previous certificated learning or have prior working experience but don’t yet meet the criteria for Full or Associate Membership.
Students are just starting out in the industry and don’t yet have enough prior knowledge and experience to become an Affiliate, but wish to study with STEP.
