IRES Designation Programs’ FAQ:

Do I have to be a member of IRES to obtain my designation?

Not immediately. Designations require at least two years of Regulatory experience; if you are not a member but qualify for membership and a designation, feel free to apply at the time of the designation application. Often, our membership chooses to join IRES as they pursue their needed courses for fulfillment of designation requirements, as discounts are sometimes available, and being a member for two years negates the need to verify your two years of industry experience.
