BICSc membership is changing
In recognition of the crucial role The British Institute of Cleaning Science plays in protecting and improving standards in the cleaning industry, BICSc is making some important changes to the structure and routes to Institute membership.
From 1st April 2017, BICSc will be focusing its routes to membership on education. New members will, therefore, be able to apply for one of the following three membership grades. The membership grade you are eligible for will depend on your level of training as follows:
- PBICSc - to be eligible for this grade you must have completed Licence to Practice (LTP) training
- CBICSc - to be eligible for this grade you must have completed Licence to Practice (LTP) training as well as three further skills from CPSS 2.0
- LBICSc - to be eligible for this grade you must have completed Licence to Practice (LTP) training, seven further skills from CPSS 2.0 and be approved as an Assessor
So what does this mean for existing BICSc members?
If you are currently an ABICSc, MBICSc or FBICSc member then your membership will not be affected by these changes and your membership grade will be protected until it lapses.
BICSc see this change as an important step to encouraging its members to develop their knowledge and understanding of the cleaning industry through accredited education.
