Post-nominals are letters placed after a person’s name to indicate that an individual holds a position or qualification.

Certain API memberships permit the member to use post-nominals to indicate the level of professional expertise they have achieved.  More information can be found in the Member Policy.

These are an important part of demonstrating your professionalism, knowledge and commitment to Continuing Professional Development (CPD). Post-nominals available through API membership are listed below:
