Entry Level

All CIEP members join at Entry Level. This level is ideal if:

  • you’re thinking about becoming a proofreader or copyeditor
  • it’s part of what you do, but not the main part
  • you haven’t done much paid work yet
  • you need time to gather evidence for upgrading to a higher level.

If you’re more experienced than this, you may want to plan your upgrade to one of our higher levels of membership: Intermediate, Professional or Advanced Professional.

Entry Level membership benefits

  • free digital copies of all CIEP guides and fact sheets
  • access to the CIEP forums
  • member discounts on CIEP training and our annual conference
  • discounts on external training, seminars and conferences
  • discounts on a wide range of books, journals, products and services
  • discount on professional indemnity insurance.

I am just overwhelmed by the amount of support on these forums and at events/meet ups. No matter the question or problem or bout of impostor syndrome that has hit me, I've always had thoughtful, considerate and excellent advice from so many of you and I can't even begin to say how much that has helped me at a very scary time in my career.
