So.... I have been an Associate member for years as, for personal reasons, I didn't finish the whole of what is now the Level 7 course.
I finally got my act together and decided to apply for the experience assessment rather than start the whole course again and still have to have the assessment!
Results are through today - and I've passed!! Finally Chartered!! Such a relief! We are going through an incredibly busy time at work and so much went wring while I was completing the assessment. The hard work paid off!!
Won't be able to celebrate for a few days but definitely deserve a glass of bubbly!
So if you are thinking about routes - go for it - the timing is never right - and it is a considered cost! But - I think it was worth it in the end!
