CMC certification

CICMC strives to enhance the professionalism and recognition of the Management Consulting profession in the Caribbean. We are committed to upholding the ethical and professional standards outlined in our Code of Professional Conduct.

We facilitate our members in attaining the Certified Management Consultant™ (CMC®) credential promoted by the International Council of Management Consulting Institutes (ICMCI). This is the only global professional management consulting designation with recognition in over 47 countries and offered exclusively in the Caribbean region by the CICMC. This global standard for management consultancy has already now been adopted by CARICOM, and will shortly become an ISO standard.

The international designation encourages continuous professional development and assesses whether candidates meet the global standard in respect of:

  • Business Competence – demonstrating insight of the client’s business and processes, the market sector and the national economy and culture
  • Technical Competence – demonstrating of functional or sectoral specialisation, as well as analytical and problem solving skills
  • Consulting Competence – demonstration of the consulting process in client engagements, use of appropriate consulting tools and management of risk and quality related issues
  • Professional Competence – adherence to the code of conduct and professional ethics, and demonstrating effective personal and interpersonal skills

The CMC® certification is awarded to consultants who have met global standards for competence, ethics, and results. A candidate must submit to a rigorous vetting process that includes receiving feedback from clients, documenting consulting experiences, online assessments of consulting competencies, practice and ethics, and a panel interview by senior CMCs.

No other qualification covers this important range for management consultants. As a competency based qualification, all CMCs are required to undertake a process of continuing professional development and educational activities.
