How can I apply to be a Chartered Professional?

All applicants must demonstrate the following criteria:

  • Hold a current financial membership with AusIMM (MAusIMM or above)
  • Hold a relevant tertiary degree or equivalent to the accredited discipline
  • Have at least five years of relevant work experience within the resources sector in at least one area of practice in the applied disciplined
  • Demonstrate key competencies and a detailed written response with proof the applicant has worked proficiently in practice and the relevant discipline for five years
  • Nominate three sponsors who can verify the applicant’s qualifications and experience
  • Demonstrate professional development during the three years prior to the CP application. There must be evidence by a completed AusIMM online PD logbook with a minimum 150 hours logged
  • Applicants must submit a CV

The term ‘Chartered Professional’ (CP) should not be confused with the term ‘Competent Person’. An AusIMM Chartered Professional undergoes an accreditation process through the AusIMM Chartered Professional Program while a Competent Person must meet a separate set of specific criteria in relation to the JORC code. The AusIMM Chartered Professional Program does not assess this. A Competent Person must spell out the term in full and cannot use the acronym ‘CP’. This is reserved for Chartered Professionals only.
