Which membership is right for me?

The Australian Property Institute offers two basic membership types: Professional Memberships and General Memberships.

Professional Memberships

These levels of membership recognise your education and experience and dedication to continuous improvement in industry standards and education. The membership levels below confer post-nominals and instantly identify you as a leading property professional.

  • Provisional (PMAPI)
    For those who meet the educational requirements. Provisional Members may also apply for the API Certification of Residential Property Valuer once they have achieved 12 months’ experience in the industry.
     
  • Associate (AAPI)
    For those who meet the educational requirements and have more than two years’ experience in the industry. Associate Members may apply for and hold one or more API Certification.
     
  • Fellow (FAPI)
    For those who have maintained Associate Membership for at least ten years, recognition as a Fellow of the API shows your dedication and commitment to the industry. Fellows may apply for and hold one or more API Certification.
     
  • Life Fellow (LFAPI)
    The highest recognition that a member can achieve, Life Fellow is bestowed on those members who have been recognised by their peers for their commitment, dedication and contribution to the property industry, the API and the community. Life Fellows may apply for and hold one or more API Certification.

 

General Memberships
