My digital certificate

CIOL now offers certificates to all members in digital format (PDF)

The new certificate adds an extra layer of protection to CIOL members and their clients through the addition of a unique URL linking back to your profile(s) on the CIOL Member Check.

Postnominal letters

Postnominal letters, (also known as postnominal initials, postnominal titles or designatory letters), are letters placed after a person's name to indicate that that individual holds a position, academic degree, or other form of public accreditation.

Procedures for Chartered Linguists called for audit

As part of CIOL’s quality assurance procedures to ensure standards for Chartered Linguist registration are maintained, we call a random selection of Chartered Linguists for audit on a regular basis.

If you have been called for audit, we will have notified you of the date by which the evidence required to support your continued registration as a Chartered Linguist must be received. Please ensure that the evidence requested is submitted by this date otherwise your registration may be affected.
