Intermediate Level

Intermediate membership is for editors and proofreaders who are establishing their career and have a minimum of one year’s professional experience.

This level is ideal for you if:

  • you’ve done some core editing or proofreading training (at least one or two courses)
  • you have at least 100 hours of work experience
  • you need time to gather evidence for upgrading to a higher level.

If you’re more experienced than this and have taken more training, you may want to plan your upgrade to Professional or Advanced Professional level.

Intermediate Member 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
