This is the first step of the program and it is designed to determine your Program Certification Level. 

To ensure objectivity and the value of the Pre-assessment, we require independent validation of your Pre-assessment by a Reviewer who is familiar with your work and at a suitable level of authority. Please provide examples for all of the points you claim in your Pre-assessment, as this supporting information will assist the Reviewer.

Reviewer Assignment 

If you have not had a Reviewer pre-­assigned, your first step will be to nominate a Reviewer by following our on-­screen instructions. Please note that we verify all Reviewer nominations to ensure the integrity of the review process. 

This typically takes up to 24 hours although there may be a delay during weekends or holidays. Your Pre-assessment cannot be submitted for review until your Reviewer is approved. We appreciate your patience. The Pre-assessment is a straightforward process and the on-screen instructions are easy to follow. When Pre-assessment is submitted, an email will be automatically generated to let your manager/reviewer know they have a review outstanding.

Your Program Level 

Based on the scores of your validated Pre-assessment, you will be advised of the Program Level for which you have qualified. 

Your Certification Level (Practitioner, Advanced Practitioner or Expert) 

Your Certification Level is based on a holistic assessment of your Skills, Knowledge and Experience and it is awarded upon successful completion of all program components:

  1. We assess the skills and experience through an online Pre-assessment, validated by your nominated reviewer and therefore it must be accurately completed with examples provided for each claimed point. Please note that certain fields of the assessment like, for example, the extent of business acumen and the level of professional contribution are especially important to this determination.
  2. Learning, including the Module Tests, Certification Examination and Message Board requirements. You must achieve the pass mark required for your Program Level. Scoring a higher pass mark for the Certification Examination will not qualify you for a higher level of certification.
  3. Candidates who qualified for the Expert program will be invited to an online interview with a representative from the Learning & Development team. The candidates should be prepared to discuss their professional experience supporting their application for admission, tentative ideas for a Business Case they would like to work on during the program, and elements of the CCM Practitioner and Advanced Practitioner program that have helped inform their idea The conversation is entirely confidential and takes approximately 30 minutes.
