Please contact us on and an email will be sent to you with a membership form attached which you should print off and return to the IACST (the address will be on the end of the downloaded application form). Please ensure that all required membership documentation is sent with your membership form as failure to do so will delay processing of your membership.

Anatomy and Physiology Specifications:

From the 2016/2017 registered year, Anatomy & Physiology (A&P) will be included in the membership criteria for registered therapists of the IACST.
This is necessary to maintain alignment with government and European standards, for the upcoming voluntary registration, without which we run the huge risk of it becoming illegal to practice CST in Ireland.

The level required in A&P is FETAC Level 5, ITEC Level 3. If you have A&P completed but it doesn't state if standard is FETAC Level 5 or ITEC Level 3, then a letter WILL BE required from your education provider stating that this particular course OR module is equivalent to either FETAC Level 5 or ITEC Level 3.

The only exceptions will be for those who have already completed A&P to the level described above or it was included in a degree level programme or equivalent thereof. Examples are osteopath/physio/occupational therapist/doctor/nurse etc.

Students will not be required to have this certificate for student membership but will require it to attain registered member status.

Please email our admin on for a new full membership form.
