Frequently Asked Questions
How do I become a member?
What is the difference between a “Associate Member” and a “Professional Member” membership?
An Associate Member can access all our masterclasses and limited access to our L&D Resource Library.
The Professional Membership is our most popular level. It will give you access to a range of discounted benefits, including our PI & PL insurance benefit, networking and professional development. This level is most suited for people who are focused on growing their L&D business or career.
What membership level do I need to join at to access ILP’s professional indemnity & public liability insurance benefit?
This great premium package for $10M Public Liability and $5M Public Indemnity insurance is only available to Professional Members and Fellows.
What are alternative qualifications, ILP accepts if I do not have a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (TAE)?
We will accept any relevant Certificate IV qualifications for learning and development professionals (e.g. Facilitation, Coaching, Instructional Design) or evidence of any formal training program that is more than 30 hours.
If you have no formal qualifications we will need a written reference from an employer or client, confirming your professionalism and skills as a learning and development professional.
I am only part way through my Certificate IV in TAE, can I still join?
Yes, please provide evidence on what subjects you have completed to date from the organisation providing the Certificate IV in TAE, and send through your certificate for our records upon completion.
I have been training for over 5 years, but have no formal qualifications, can I still become a member?
Yes you can. Please send us a copy of your CV or LinkedIn profile outlining your experience, or a reference from an employer or client who you have either designed or delivered a learning initiative for, and stating what service/program you provided and the results achieved.
Can I send my evidence documents separately (via email or mail)?
Are membership renewed on the anniversary of the joining date or is there a common date for all members?
Your membership will be renewed on the anniversary of your joining date.
I want to join as a Fellow, but cannot provide all my required documentation now, what should I do?
You have two options:
- You can join now as a Professional Member, and then upgrade (pro rata rate) when you have gathered the necessary evidence for Fellow level, or
- Contact us on 1300 768660 to discuss your application with one of our friendly team.
