The Certified Management Consultant qualification is awarded by National Professional Bodies. These bodies are regularly assessed by ICMCI, the in practice owner of the qualification CMC, to ensure that they meet defined standards. These standards are available on this web site. The standards require a candidate to demonstrate a level of competence in the defined areas, client experience and satisfaction, a defined degree of knowledge about the process of consulting and the business environment, a period of successful practice as a management consultant and adherence to a code of conduct and ethics.
An initial approach should be made to one's own national professional body and these are listed again on this web site.
Should a candidate be living and working permanently in another country, they may wish to contact the local professional body. For those living in countries where there is not yet a local Institute, some of the larger professional Bodies (for example Australia, Austria, Canada, Holland, India, UK and USA) are experienced in assessing candidates from other countries.
ICMCI encourages all professional management consultants to explore the options of obtaining this internationally recognized qualification in one of the modern business professions.
