    Welcome to the BCS :)

    As for how long to wait before applying for the CITP... If you meet the requirements/experience, you can go for it now.

    Once you apply it can take a while to go thru the process, it took me about 6 weeks and I believe it took UKD 4 weeks (however we went thru the process a couple of years ago).

    Don't forget about the tax relief you can get for being a member of the BCS.
