When you have downloaded the appropriate form and read through the information you can begin the application process by contacting one of our Area Representatives (find your rep). The Area rep will discuss the certification and application process with you, and may ask you to send them a few photos of your recent work to allow them to assess your skill level. The Rep will advise whether they feel you are ready to take the certification test, or if there are aspects of your work which may require improvement before sitting the test.
A fee of £25 is payable for certification, and only those who pass the certification test will be offered a formal invitation to join the association. If you have not reached the required standard you will be notified of which aspects you need to improve, and help and advice will be offered to improve these areas with a view to re-testing. You may then re-sit the certification within six months of the original test without paying any additional fee.

Should you have any questions concerning applications please contact one of our Area Representatives, or e-mail the Membership Administrator at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We look forward to welcoming you to FACE.
