Invest in your career. Become ARA qualified. Get the recognition you deserve.

Welcome to the ARA’s professional development programme, a competency based process through which members can qualify as a Foundation, Registered or Fellow Member of the ARA. 

Foundation (FMARA), Registered (RMARA) and Fellow (FARA) are professional levels of membership that offer designatory letters, known as professional qualifications, equal to those offered by many comparable professions. They provide public and professional recognition that you have met nationally recognised standards of knowledge and competency set by the ARA. 

The three levels of membership are a demonstration of your commitment to meeting the highest professional and ethical standards, and to continuing your professional development, ensuring your skills and knowledge remain current. They are a public declaration of professional integrity, as members of the ARA follow a code of professional ethics

Register and enrol today and become part of a professional community at the forefront of archives, archive conservation and records management.
