Direct Debit Mandate Form
is the highest grade of membership of the Institution and is conferred on those working in highways and transportation with proven ability who have made a significant contribution to their profession. Fellows are seen as exemplars of the corporate identity of the Institution and, as such, CIHT needs to be satisfied that successful applicants, by their actions, will reflect its aims and objectives.
As a senior highways and transportation practitioner, an applicant for FCIHT would normally be making a major contribution to the profession, either through involvement with CIHT or independently, and have reached a pinnacle of career distinction within their field. FCIHT is highly respected in the industry as a symbol of excellence.
Because of the wide range of routes to membership, an absolute and specific definition of the attributes required for Fellow status is difficult to provide. Examples of FCIHT attributes include:
Level of financial responsibility
Active Continuing Professional Development
Contribution to training and staff development, mentoring
Promotion of the profession
Promotion of diversity
Dependent upon the applicant’s particular career path, it may not be possible, or essential, to cover all of these attributes but FCIHT applicants will need to demonstrate clearly their role, responsibilities and contribution, emphasising these where relevant.
New applicants or CIHT Members wishing to transfer
If you are a new applicant applying for Fellow grade or an existing CIHT member wishing to transfer to Fellow grade please complete the Fellowship form which can be found in our Related Documents on the right-hand side.
