Full support

We understand that the accreditation process can be quite daunting, even for seasoned professionals. Our accreditation team are here to help and support you in any way they can and to ensure that your journey to accreditation is both successful and beneficial for your ongoing development.

Capability not Bureaucracy

Our capability model is designed to ensure that only those professionals who can demonstrate their capability at the required level will achieve their accreditation status. We don’t ask for lots of paperwork, assignments. or case studies; we focus on what is relevant to the level you are applying for. Naturally, as the levels increase so does the requirement to demonstrate a greater capability. We will never compromise on our standards, but we won’t ask you to do anything we don’t require either.

Accreditation Renewal

Every three years you will be required to submit evidence that you continue to deliver your services at the highest levels expected by the IAPC&M and that you are following our Code of Professional Conduct. Full details of the process are provided when your reaccreditation becomes due.
