1.   Complete an application form and send it to us along with copy qualifications (or details of course being studied) and application fee.

2.   If successful you will get offered the opportunity to join. Pay the annual membership fee and get a registered membership number.
Please note that the amounts mentioned for membership fees reduce each quarter - see our fee table on our Shopping Cart for an example


3.   Put that number on the insurance application, send it and your premium to Balens Insurances for Practitioner Insurance cover (or Student case study cover) on the ARCHTI Members Group Scheme.
