Chartered Professionals

Accredited leaders across the resources sector

A purpose-built program for the resources sector, underpinned by AusIMM Royal Charter

Chartered Professionals are highly regarded in industry for their dedication, expertise and commitment to high standards of conduct.

AusIMM’s Chartered Professional Program provides multi-disciplinary assessment and recognition of resources sector professionals.

Globally Relevant

AusIMM is the custodian of mining standards, including the internationally-benchmarked JORC Code and VALMIN Code. With the growing recognition of Chartered programs in the Australasian and global market, there has never been a better time to become an AusIMM Chartered Professional.

AusIMM is a partner in the Global Mining Standards and Guidelines Group (GMSG), which facilitates global mining collaboration; and the Global Mineral Professional Alliance (GMPA), a network of leading professional organisations for resources professionals.

Ethics and Risk

Chartered Professionals are qualified and competent and, like all AusIMM members, abide by our Code of Ethics and maintain current knowledge through ongoing professional development. Employing Chartered Professionals equips organisations with a professional workforce that is compliant and current. Employers that recognise and promote this distinction can differentiate themselves in the marketplace, giving clients another reason to choose them over competitors.

Standards and Excellence

Chartered status provides an assurance of standards and professionalism for the public benefit. The Chartered Professional (CP) credential represents excellence within the relevant discipline and helps you stand out from the crowd.
Becoming a Chartered Professional provides a competitive advantage, recognises experience and leadership and provides critical status and credentials in an increasingly regulated market.

Discipline Specific

The Chartered Professional Program Committee (CPPC) accredits professionals in the following core disciplines:

  • Environment
  • Geology
  • Management
  • Mining
  • Metallurgy
  • Geotechnical (Mining)


I always encourage promising young mining engineers and geologists to obtain AusIMM membership and ultimately become a Chartered Professional (CP). The AusIMM CP program is on par with any other Chartered program, nationally and internationally, and the only one specifically for mining professionals in Australia.
