I was recently accepted as a member of the Chartered Institute for IT with Chartered IT Professional status (CITP).
CITP is the benchmark of excellence, and is a rigorously assessed, employer led standard…Holding Chartered status reflects your integrety, professionalism and dedication to your work.
BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT is a professional body and a learned society that represents those working in Information Technology. Established in 1957, it is the largest United Kingdom-based professional body for computing, which was formally known as the British Computer Society.
With a worldwide membership of over 70,000 members in over 100 countries, BCS is a registered charity and was incorporated by Royal Charter in 1984. Its objectives are to promote the study and application of communications technology and computing technology and to advance knowledge of education in ICT for the benefit of professional practitioners and the general public.
BCS is a member institution of Engineering Council UK, and therefore is responsible for regulation of ICT and computer science fields within the UK. The BCS is also a member of the Council of European Professional Informatics Societies (CEPIS).
