How to progress through IOV Accreditation
When you first join the IOV your initial status is ‘Ordinary’ (a non qualified) member. Ordinary Members enjoy all the financial, practical and support benefits of membership with the exception of being able to fully exploit their membership for commercial gain.
To use the IOV logo, and eventually be promoted by the IOV, members must demonstrate levels of competency through IOV Accreditation.
Full details on Membership Levels can be found here.
Whilst you can remain as an Ordinary Member for as long as you wish, there are definite commercial benefits in progressing through our accreditation system.
