Let's Set Sail

You bring the ambition. We've got the guidance to get you there.

Congratulations! You've been awarded Foundation Chartered Manager (fCMgr) status as an extra commendation for the hard work you put into your CMI programme. Now, what's your next goal?

Since you completed your CMI programme, we've added an exciting new dimension to the recognition earned from it, and we didn’t want you to miss out. So, if you reinstate your CMI membership for just £50*, or £5 a month, you can now proudly tell the world you’re a Foundation Chartered Manager and put the letters ‘fCMgr’ after your name!

The best part, though, is that being a Foundation Chartered Manager puts your long-term career goals firmly within your reach. Get clear, tailored development guidance to help you from one milestone to the next — not only showing your commitment to your Continuing Professional Development (CPD), but also setting you up with a lifelong career partner dedicated to helping you succeed.
