How we support you
We offer invaluable support and resources to help you in your current role, whatever the employment sector, and also to develop for the future. Accredited associate membership gives you:
We are a world-renowned professional body with a reputation for excellence and innovation. Membership at the Accredited Associate level shows a passion for environmental health and a dedication to high standards of professionalism, which you can demonstrate through use of the designatory letters ‘ACIEH’ after your name. You also become part of our recognised CPD scheme, with the annual completion of 10 hours CPD demonstrating your ongoing commitment to professional excellence. All this helps you stand out of the crowd to current and potential employers and clients.
Through access to EHN magazine (delivered to your door and e-edition online), monthly member-only e-newsletters and online updates you will have cutting-edge information about environmental health. This, alongside our technical briefings and conferences and seminars (with up to £200 saving on the cost), will give you the knowledge you need to perform in your role.
Support in your career
Membership means resources, such as case studies, tools, workshops and good practice guidance, to guide you in your work. It also means access to a host of events to keep your skills current and to fill any gaps, giving you the competitive advantage.
Access to local and specialist low-cost and free professional development events through our membership network means meeting with peers and potential employers and clients, gaining real insight into what’s happening across the environmental health sector and making connections that can help you further down the line. You can also do this online through our MyCIEH forums.
