Chartered Meteorologists

The Society has developed and operates a Chartered Meteorologist (CMet) Accreditation Scheme whose purpose is to provide a professional qualification in meteorology at a level equivalent to that of Chartered Engineer. Accreditation assures clients and employers that the individual, in addition to initial graduate qualification, has reached and continues to maintain a specified level of specialist knowledge and experience. The Chartered Meteorologist qualification is recognized throughout the EU as the highest professional qualification available within meteorology.

Registered Meteorologist

Registered Meteorologist (RMet) is another professional qualification awarded by the Royal Meteorological Society for members pursuing a career in meteorology, or working in a role supporting meteorological services.
