The CMC-Firm Programme provides international recognition and marketing for approved firms that both commit to and are assessed as to providing management consulting services to CMC standards. CMC-Global will create and promote a global directory of CMC-Firms.
This differs from our ACP designation which certifies consulting practices as actively recruiting, training and advancing the practices of their consultants all to a CMC standard – assessed on a national basis. ACP designated firms may also present candidates for CMC certification. ACP firms may also wish to become part of the CMC-Firm programme.
A candidate CMC-Firm submits their application and has access to the program information from their head-office national institute of Management Consulting. The national IMC will vouch for the reputation and presence of duly certified CMC’s within the firm’s employment.
The application is passed on to CMC-Global which will then manage the remainder of the application, fee collection, appraisal and approval process,
