How does it work?

The certification proces step by step: 

  • Register for your (re)certfication. 
  • Determine your certification level.
  • Provide a current copy of your résumé/CV and documentation of academic degree or equivalency.
  • Identify the competencies you can demonstrate, meeting the requirements for your Level of Certification.
  • Competencies must be validated by accomplishments within the past five years to indicate your experience and professional development are up-to-date.
  • Insert all information required into the Application document, following specific directions for each uploading annotated evidence.
  • Commit to the Code of Ethical Practices with your signature.
  • Submit the completed on-line application and pay the appropriate fees online.
  • Allow 4-6 weeks for your Application to be reviewed by the Application Review Division. If you are applying for CMF Certification, a Fellow Interview will be conducted. When the Application Review Division is satisfied that the Application meets the Institute’s portfolio-based criteria, it will recommend acceptance to the Board of Governors, who will then vote. If a majority is in favor, you will be notified of your Certification and a certificate will be issued.
  • Your Certificate will be mailed from the ICCI offices once you have been certified. Allow 2 to 3 weeks for the certificate to arrive.
