The Chartered Director qualification is an experience-based assessment. It requires you to evidence how you work within the context of your board, how you use your knowledge and skills to the benefit of the organisation and how you discharge your duties as a director.

The qualification comprises three stages which assess your practical experience as a director:

  • Application
  • Overview of experience
  • Formal interview conducted by two Chartered Director assessors


To be able to apply for the Chartered Director qualification you must have obtained a pass or above in both the IoD Certificate and Diploma in Company Direction in the last 10 years.

You must also be able to demonstrate:

  • Substantial experience in one or more director or equivalent roles for a period of three full years during the last ten years
  • For each directorship, that the board is autonomous and formally constituted, and comprises at least three directors – executive and non-executive
  • That you participate in regular board meetings – at least four a year, with two or more other directors
  • That you work for an organisation that has a minimum of five employees and generates a minimum turnover of £250,000 per annum
