Membership Transfer Test


The Institute recommends Internationally Qualified Members, who elected as Fellows or Associates in other divisions of CGI, to obtain Ordinary Membership through taking the Membership Transfer Test (MTT). Upon successful completion of the MTT, members will become Ordinary Members and entitled to use the Institute’s designations of HKFCG or HKACG.


The key objective of MTT is to examine whether Internationally Qualified Members are equipped with sufficient local knowledge, understanding and skills to perform their duties as Chartered Secretaries and Chartered Governance Professionals in the corporate sector.

Recommended Modules

Selected modules of the Institute’s Chartered Governance Qualifying Programme (CGQP) will be adopted as MTT for Internationally Qualified Members to attempt. Examinations are held twice a year in June and November. All rules and regulations applicable to the CGQP are also applied to the MTT.

Upon the launch of dual designations of Chartered Secretary (CS) and Chartered Governance Professional (CGP) by CGI and the Institute, Internationally Qualified Members may have CS or CGP or both designations. The recommended modules to be attempted for such members are set out below:
