Apply to register with CNHC - A Step by Step Guide
If you are a not a member of one of the organisations listed below for the relevant discipline there are a number of organisations who have agreed to verify applications for CNHC registration for non members. This means the organisation will assess your application for an administration fee but you do not have to join their organisation as a member.
Please note Professional Association (PA) membership is encouraged in addition to CNHC registration because PAs play an important role in providing a range of services to their members.
Please call CNHC on 020 3668 0406 and we will explain how you can proceed with your application to register.
