Standards for passing the AMCC
Standards for achieving the AMCC designation are derived from a combination of the CMC-Global Competency Framework, ISO 17011 and ISO 17024. The Trainers in the program must also be approved. Standard requirements are, that they have been through a formal Train the Trainer program and they are Certified Management Con-sultants (CMC’s). 

CMC-Global will embed reviews of the monitoring of these standards as part of the triennial IMC assessment. Thus, only full members of CMC-Global will be able to offer the AMCC designation. 

CMC-Global Competency Framework 

The CMC Global Competency Framework consist of 3 main areas and 8 sub-areas. See figure. 
The 8 sub-areas are divided into 39 Competence definitions, where assessment crite-ria’s is defined for every competence.




EMC Competence Framework  
When we create the EMC competency framework, we took the out-set in CMC-Global Competency  Framework, ISO/EN standards, other Industry standards from ex. UK and USA and Customer surveys from 7 countries.
So, the CMC Global is a superset for the EMC Competency Framework.

The EMC Global Competency Framework consist of 3 main areas and 17 sub-areas. The 17 sub-areas are divided into 41 Competence definitions, where assessment cri-teria’s is defined for every competence.

Mapping of CMC-Global Competency Framework and Education for Management Consultants Program  
We have done a mapping of the EMC Education for Management Consultants with the CMC-Global Competency Framework to secure that we are compliant with the re-quirements.
