Programme Accreditation Process

The Steps to Accredit, or Re-accredit, your programme

For your programme to be accredited, it must demonstrate that it covers the expected five years of development of a management consultant at all stages, along with the Chartered competencies.

Your in-house training will be mapped against the competency framework to ensure it is meeting the standards of the ChMC framework.

The Chartered Management Consultant award is developed for the purpose of setting and maintaining the highest standards in the management consulting profession. Central to this is the award’s Competency Framework.

The framework is the central reference point around which the award’s pathways and methods of assessment are based. It is the document against which individual consultants and organisations can compare their own development and capabilities to establish the degree to which they match the criteria set for the award and to determine what additionally they must do to meet the standards set.

Download Competency Framework

The Chartered Management Consultant (ChMC) programme accreditation process requires an organisation to map their internal training and development programme against the ChMC competencies.

Supported by a dedicated Mapping Specialist, an organisation will evidence how it supports the development and assessment of its management consultants, providing a pathway to ChMC status.

View the accreditation guidance document, which sets out the process for an organisation to gain CMI accreditation for its inhouse management consultant development programme.
