This is the first step of the program and it is designed to determine your Program Certification Level. It provides you with an opportunity to demonstrate the scale of your past experience and achievements and accurate completion of the Pre-assessment is essential for your professional Certification as well as career development.
To ensure objectivity and the value of the Pre-assessment, we require an 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.
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 a Pre-assessment is submitted, an email will be automatically generated to let manager/reviewer know they have a review outstanding.
Your Program Level
All SRM candidates start at the Practitioner Level; successful candidates are able to progress to the next level after one year and successful demonstration of appropriate experience via the self-assessment. We assess the skills and experience through an on-line 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.
