Interested in joining the GBCT?
Guild members are known throughout the world as being The Best of the Best because they know what they are doing and can always be relied on to deliver what is required.
To become a member of the GBCT you need to be a technician who is technically and craft trained properly - with a good eye for the aesthetic! There are very few rules on how to become a member, but there is a tough selection process prior to anyone being invited to join.
To apply, complete an application form, get 4 members you have worked with regularly or for a long period of time to provide references, attach a copy of your full CV and send it into the office either by post or email. Once checked, the application is vetted by a specially convened Membership Committee made up of at least one Board Member and members who are in the same grade as an applicant. After the Membership Committee has made its decision, the application is passed onto the Board who discuss and approve (or provide reasons why approval has been postponed). The successful applicant is then invited to join the Guild
