Student & Associate Membership of the AMUSF

Student Membership AMUSF Students

Students undertaking an AMUSF qualification at an “AMUSF Approved Training Centre” are automatically enrolled as ‘Student Members’  from the date of their registration with head office to the date of issue of a certificate signifying successful completion of their course.   Their training centre will supply them with the appropriate registration form which should be sent to the AMUSF within 30 days of commencing the course;  a copy of the registration form is available to download below.

Student registration entitles the student to use the Group Fabric Buying Service, the head office help line and receive a copy of the “Upholsterer and Soft Furnisher” quarterly journal and the monthly e-newsletter for the duration of their training.    They have no voting rights and cannot use the crest or logo in any form.

Associate Membership

The Associate Membership category is for those students who have qualified through the AMUSF or have another recognised qualification, ie City & Guilds, or who have experience by working for an upholstery company.   This is a stepping stone category for those going on to start their own business, and is open to them for up to three years before applying for full membership.

For an annual subscription of £72 (£60 plus 20% VAT) Associate Members are entitled to the following benefits:

  • A copy of the monthly E-Newsletter
  • Access to the Group Fabric Buying Scheme enabling purchase of materials at preferential rates.
