b. Apply to complete a one to two day FIPI training course with an ATP to show they have the professional skills and knowledge in style and image to start the process of becoming a FIPI Master.

c. Submit their Portfolio Of Evidence (POE) which needs to be approved, verified and accepted by the Head Of Accreditation and FIPI’s Internal Verifier (IV).

This is a prerequisite and it is only once your POE has been accepted that dates can be set.

The Fellow award is given to current and former board members who have made an exceptional contribution to FIPI. It is not based on the length or seniority of FIPI membership or on the length of time the title of FIPI Master has been held.                     

This decision is always made by the board, must be unanimous and awarded on merit in recognition of the dedication shown to promoting the growth of FIPI. Most Fellows hold the Masters Award in Image Consultancy, are highly experienced, qualified consultants and have been involved in FIPI in many ways over many years.

FIPI Fellows can get involved in FIPI in many ways such as being a keynote speaker, image trainer, mentor, member of our training council, award assessor and board director. A Fellow Member will be considered an industry thought leader with FIPI and the board will welcome your viewpoint on many industries and FIPI related matters.

FIPI’s mission is to support you every step of the way from choosing the right course to get you started to providing you with education and skills through the ‘FIPI Hangout Sessions’. You will have access to highly qualified mentors through every part of your journey for each year of membership, and be part of a vibrant styling and image community of industry professionals.
