This 12-step document will guide you to prepare and submit your Application for certification as a Career Management Associate (CMA); Career Management Professional (CMP) or Career Management Fellow (CMF).
Applying for certification is a rigorous and time-consuming process. You must provide evidence that you meet all the requirements for the certification for which you are applying. For this reason, you must have a Career Management Fellow (CMF), whose certification is current, to be your “Fellow Mentor.” S/he will guide you through the process. When the Application is complete, your Fellow Mentor signs-off that it is ready to be submitted for Review.
If you know a career professional with a current CMF Certification, you are welcome to ask that individual to be your Fellow Mentor. If you prefer that ICCI connect you with a Fellow Mentor, contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your request.
Completing Your Application
It is good practice to consult with your Fellow Mentor to walk through the entire Application before beginning to complete it. We recommend that you and your Fellow Mentor agree on dates for completing each section of the application, and schedule check-in calls as you complete these. This helps to build and maintain momentum, and ensures you are on track.
Collect all the requested information and enter it into this Word document for your working copy as you are completing each section. (We encourage you to back up this document as you are working on it.) When completed, save it as an .rtf, .doc, or.docx document for submission.
Submitting Your Application
The Application Review Division (ARD) will examine your Application to ensure you meet ICCI’s standards for certification. An ARD Reviewer will contact you if there are questions, or additional information is required. Once the Application has been favorably reviewed, the Board of Governors of ICCI will then vote whether to approve your Application.
Please allow 4-6 weeks for your Application to be processed and reviewed.
