Academic Staff - Full Member

This grade of membership is open to those who lecture in courses in Rehabilitation Counsellor academic programs accredited by ASORC ®. Part-time lecturing staff will also be considered for this grade of membership. Academic membership lapses on the cessation of teaching in the ASORC  ® accredited Rehabilitation Course.

Academic members do not need to hold formal educational qualifications in Rehabilitation Counselling or to have had specific work experience as a Rehabilitation Counsellor.

(Note: acquisition of Full Membership via academic status does not necessarily deem the person appropriate to carry out certain services under the various accident and workers compensation schemes. Evidence of skill in the required area would need to be proven to the appropriate authority).
