About Membership

The Post-Tensioning Institute of Australia (PTIA) was formed to represent the post-tensioning contracting industry in Australia, seeking to maintain a viable and competent industry with high standards in design and construction of post-tensioning systems for the benefits of its members, their employees, and their clients.

Membership of the PTIA is open to organisations and individuals who have an interest in post-tensioning consistent with the objects of the PTIA, namely –

  1. to ensure that the post-tensioning contracting industry is both viable and competitive, and
  2. to promote high standards in design, construction and materials for post-tensioning systems, consistent with world best practice, and verified by certification of its Corporate and Associate Members, and
  3. to develop industry work standards which establish appropriate skills of employees, personal development opportunities, a safe working environment, and environmental responsibility, and
  4. to achieve ongoing technical advances in materials and systems for post-tensioning.
All members agree to be bound by the Constitution of the PTIA and its Code of Ethics.

There are four categories of membership, namely – Corporate, Associate, Association and Individual. Fees for membership are shown in the table below.

Corporate and some Associate members are required to meet specific criteria which identify technical competence, insurance cover, management plans and resources. These members are required to provide independent certification to verify that the criteria are met, and to maintain these criteria whilst a member of the PTIA.

Where a Corporate or Associate member has one or more subsidiaries or other companies belonging to its group, only those entities which individually meet the membership criteria may be included under the company’s membership.

Applications for Membership are to be made on the appropriate form accompanied by the documentation requested and the joining fee where applicable. Joining fees are to meet the costs of processing applications and are non refundable. Membership applications will be considered by the Board of the PTIA at its next meeting. Upon acceptance, the applicant will become a member of the Institute and will be notified within 7 days of the Board’s decision. The Annual Subscription will be due for payment within 28 days of acceptance as a member.
