The gateway to Chartered status
Graduate Members have achieved a recognised and relevant degree-level qualification and are working towards the goal of Chartered status.
If you’re a Graduate Member you should reach Chartered status within five years of entering the category (an additional two years may be awarded on request if the eligibility criteria are met). Once enrolled on our Initial Professional Development (IPD) scheme, you will be assessed to see if you meet the standards to become a Chartered Member. Alongside IPD, you are also required to maintain your CPD record.
As a Graduate Member, you can use the post-nominal letters GradIOSH after your name.
If you need advice about Graduate Membership or changing membership categories, please email our Membership team or call +44 (0)116 257 3198.
If Graduate membership is not for you, have a look at all of our membership categories again or see if you could progress to Chartered membership.
