Beneficial Changes in IMarEST Membership Structure

As a progressive and practical organisation the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST) constantly evolves to meet the needs of its members. Thanks to recent changes, Chief Engineers and Masters may now, once again, join as full corporate Members (MIMarEST) of the Institute rather than being Associate members (AMIMarEST). The IMarEST approach to membership is not based on academic qualifications; it has to be a combination of academic and practical professional experience the exact mix varying from person to person.

Membership demonstrates an appreciation and acknowledgement of the practical knowledge and experience of senior Merchant Navy officers, acquired after many years of managing technology, people, and complex business and regulatory relationships on board ships and other marine assets, often in unpredictable and hostile environments. The Institute also provides a valuable stepping stone of knowledge and professional development for those seeking to develop the next stage of their careers ashore, in another part of the industry, or in different industries.

The changes have now been ratified by the Privy Council and formally implemented, with the result that all AMIMarEST become MIMarEST; all AIMarEST become AMIMarEST; all Graduates, including graduates from accredited nautical and engineering colleges (GIMarEST) becomeAMIMarEST. Student and Affiliate membership remains unchanged as do the standards and achievements required of a Fellow. The AIMarEST grade also disappears.
