The goal of most of those who join the association is to reach the grade of “Full Membership/Fellowship”.
This qualification is validated by a thorough examination of a candidate’s experience, strengths and weaknesses, and is therefore recognised throughout the world as proof of expertise.
If you are already a full member and have worked at a senior level in the industry for at least fifteen years and above then you could be suitable for Fellowship “FOSHA”, after thorough evaluation by the membership team. This is the highest grade of membership at OSHAssociation worldwide.
HOW TO UPGRADE
Complete the membership UPGRADE FORM and return it to the OSHAssociation office/regional representative closest to you. Student (graduate) members should upgrade within one year of joining the association based on their experience.
Each application is approved by the Membership Committee who evaluates candidates’ performances and experiences based on their request for upgrading. Successful applicants shall receive e-mails confirming their successful admittance to their choices of upgrade. Candidates shall receive their Welcome Packs with NEW OSHAssociation Certificates of Membership, while maintaining their existing membership numbers. The upgrade takes approximately four weeks after receiving an upgrading e-mail confirming the successful submission of requirements.
WHEN CAN I USE THE DESIGNATION – “AMOSHA/MOSHA/FOSHA”?
Once a candidate receives a confirmation e-mail from OSHAssociation, they can use the designation after their name(s).
