The Institute accredits Ordinary Members based on their knowledge and experience in Value Management and its application under three main categories:

1. Value Management Study Facilitators;
2. Value Analysts; and
3. Value Management Trainers

The base levels of knowledge and experience are necessary for Ordinary Membership and so these are also shown below.
