MEMBERSHIP UPGRADE

IISSN operates a system where members can grow professionally while, at the same time, improving their competence. The Board of Trustees, Screening Committee (BOTSCOM) can advise up-to-date members, who are qualified for higher professional statuses to move up, or the concerned person can request for it.
Moving upward in the IISSN membership rungs can be by “Skip upgrade” or “Smooth upgrade”.
For instance, a Student member of IISSN can be upgraded, by “smooth” upgrade to the next status (that is, AIISSN) or by “skip” upgrade to MIISSN – which is a step higher than AIISSN.

Generally, higher membership statuses are opportunities for the concerned persons to take up newer challenges in the Safety and Security profession (and in their workplaces). Upgraded members of IISSN are exposed to newer challenges in the profession. The Institute specifically pushes them forward to stand in for her in areas where their field competence can be put to test. While anticipating a recommendation from the BOTSCOM, active and up-to-date members of IISSN can request for upgrade - from time to time.

RESPONSIBILITIES OF BOTSCOM
The Board of Trustees, Screening Committee (BOTSCOM) of the Institute assesses every member yearly for eligibility for upgrade to the next level. Only up-to-date members are usually eligible for this yearly upgrade exercise. Members can also upgrade their statuses from one level to a more challenging one after 5years of being in one status. They conduct a critical investigation of the intending member requesting for upgrade; and if the person is successful, recommends such to the Registrar for induction.

WHO MAY APPLY FOR UPGRADE?
Prospective applicants for upgrade must;

- Be bona fide members of IISSN other than FIISSN and Corporate IISSN
- Have undergone at least, another certification course with IISSN within the space of two years.
- Be able to convince the BOTSCOM (with evidence) that he / she has been actively practicing safety and / or security in workplace.
- Have back up letters from at least, one FIISSN holders.

HOW TO GET UPGRADED
Applicants wishing to move on to the next level will first need to seek the backing of two MIISSN holders and one FIISSN holders to reference him/ her for such upgrade. He/ she will then write a cover letter titled: “Application for IISSN Membership Upgrade”, and addressed to The Chairman, BOTSCOM, IISSN.
To have his application considered, he must be able to convince the BOTSCOM of his/ her improved competence and experience within the period.
Click Events and News to know when 2018 Membership Upgrade Application window will be opened.

POWERS OF BOTSCOM ON MEMBERS’ UPGRADE
The Board of Trustees’ Screening Committee (BOTSCOM) reserves the right to match applicants with the membership status that fits their qualifications, as against the applicant’s preference.
Also, the fact that you applied for upgrade, and paid the application fees, does not automatically qualify you for the upgrade. You may be required to provide one or two documents or undergo certain pre-qualification exercises or even get reference letters from certain class of IISSN before you are issued the status. It is not punishment, but to fit you into the challenges of the newer status you are going into.

COST OF MEMBERSHIP UPGRADE
Application fee = $10
Induction fee = Equivalent of ‘new’ status
Annual Subscription fee = Equivalent of ‘new’ Status
TOTAL = Application fee + induction fee + annual subscription fee
