The Academic Member category is a non-practising category within the APBC. We recognise these members for their contribution to the field of animal behaviour either through research or their position within a teaching institution. We appreciate that some Academic members may still see a small number of behaviour cases/clients on occasion but this is on the understanding that such cases would not fall under the jurisdiction of the APBC nor its complaints procedure. This must be made clear to clients and in any advertising of behavioural services. Furthermore, Academic members cannot take part in the APBC practitioner insurance scheme.
The renewal period for membership is 1st August until 31st July
