    if you worked 5 years then got enough for mbcs but hint if you know a CITP then: -

    Chartered members can nominate colleagues with 5 or more years IT experience for professional membership under the fast track processing scheme.

    haha, me too!! They started me off on the AMBCS a few years ago, 'cos i didn't have enough experience and a scraped a pass in my degree - or something like that. Think i've been able to upgrade to the professional membership for atleast a year now, just a shame i let my membership lapse

    Pity those of us without a degree or relevant trade qualifications. The last time I asked I think I have to wait 98 years to qualify for anything!

    That's funny, I have my degree (BSc Computing) and a few other professional IT certs, yet they aren't accredited so I had to "progress" the slow and long way to get to MBCS. The weird thing is that out of the 4 or 5 different Computing degress that UCN (now known as University of Northampton) do, mine is the only one not accredited by the BCS. Oh well, a couple of more years to go

    I am the same as wagnerk, a MBCS and hoping to go onto a CITP, just one more year of experience to do.
