3 Accreditation Levels

Wherever you are in your change career path, the three different levels of Accreditation will ensure a relevant assessment of your capabilities. You decide which level, you don’t have to do them in order.

Assessment is rigorous and thorough. The Change Management Institute Accreditation is not a test, rather a real world assessment of your proven skills and experience as a Change Manager. The assessment standard is the Change Manager Competency Models. The Change Management Body of Knowledge (CMBoK) describes the knowledge underpinning the competency models.

Foundation

To gain Foundation Level Accreditation your capabilities will be assessed against the behaviours outlined in the Change Manager Competency Model – Foundation level. The assessment comprises a written application providing evidence of your practical capabilities in a number of the competency areas, supported by a reference from a manager who has directly observed your behaviour in a change management role.

Specialist

The Specialist level assessment comprises a written application providing evidence of your practical capabilities in the competency areas, supported by evidence from referees who have directly observed your behaviour in change management roles. You will also participate in a virtual interview with your independent assessor.

Master

The Master level assessment comprises a written application providing evidence of your practical capabilities in the competency areas, supported by evidence from referees who have directly observed your behaviour in change roles. You will also participate in a virtual interview with your independent assessor, and if successful in part 1 and 2 of your application you will be invited to participate in a virtual assessment centre.
