Individuals who practice agrology and who are eligible for registration MUST be registered with the Institute.

You must apply as an AIT/ATT before you apply for your Professional Designation. If you apply within 90 days of convocation and are accepted into the Institute, you will be refunded the application fee of $250.

Failure to register could result in legal action being taken for those who continue to practice agrology without a practice permit.
